The very latest in the vaudeville situation 
in Philadelphia Is the fact that B. V. Keith 
has decided to enter vigorously Into the ten 
and twenty cent field, and the first step was 
taken last week when Mr. Keith took a ten 
year lease on the big Allegheny Theatre, on 
Frankford Avenue below Allegheny Avenue 
at a rental of $30,000 a year. This house 
is one of the largest lit the city, and was 
built by a syndicate headed by Joseph Cohen, 
who managed It until a few weeks ago. It 


The new Washington Theatre, first opened 
to the public July 21. la situated on the cor- 
ner of Washington Boulevard and Clifford 
Street, Detroit, Mich., In the downtown sec- 
tion of the city. 

The house cost $250,000, and has a seating 
capacity of 1.0TO. Not a visible pillar has 
been used In Its construction, so that every 
seat 'on the three floors commands an unin- 
terrupted view of the stage The ventila- 
tion scheme Is considered almost perfect. 
The ontBlde air 1b drawn Into the building, 
Is thoroughly chilled, raised again to the 
desired temperature and then, by a huge 
motor, forced into six foot chambers under- 
neath the floors, from which it Blowly es- 
capes through vents under each seat. 

As a prevention against fire there Is 
scarcely any wood used In its construction, 
and innumerable exits have been provided. 
The ' area above the stage has been so con- 
structed as to automatically form a flue In 
case of fire, drawing any smoke or heat up 
behind the asbestos curtain and away from 
the auditorium of, the bouse. 

The dressing rooms are light and large, 
and In addition there has been provided a 
iounglng room for the performers, also 
shower baths. 

Tho building of the bouse has been financed 
largely by Detroit men, with James Slo- 
cum, as secretary of tho Detroit-Washington 
Theatre Company, the holding corporation. 
Mr. Slocum Is also manager of the house. 
It Is under the direction of William Morris, 
the New York producer. 

The orchestra Is under Fred. Ii. Nedde- 
meyer; Grace Jeffcrs has charge of the box 
office; Bernlce Roe Is chief usher, and Mrs. 
C. Webster, matron. 

The policy will be that of a permanent 
stock company, with visiting stars, of which 
James K. Huckett Is the first. 
4 i ♦ 
The Majestic, owned by W. I. Hippie, was 
opened on Wednesday night, July 23, and 
Lad record breaking crowds. The building is 
one of the moat complete of its kind in the 
city, and should be appreciated by tbe resi- 
dents of the Northwestern part of the city. 

The total seating capacity is 404, includ- 
ing a balcony, which seats 62,

William McKinlcy, musical director of the 
Colonial Theatre, Boston, Mass., is visiting 
New York. He is accompanied by his daugh- 
ter, Jean. They saw tbe Ziegfeld Follies 
Wednesday afternoon, July 23, and expressed 
themselves as delighted with the show. 

has a seating capacity of 3,500. It Is but 
a short distance from the People's Theatre, 
at Kensington Avenue and Cumberland 
Street, controlled by Fred G. Nlxon-Nlrd- 
linger. Mr. Keith also conducts the Bijou. 
at Elgthh and Race Streets, as a ten and 
twenty cent house, and there are rumors 
that he intends to branch oat and run one 
or two such honses in at least ten of the 
leading cities. In some of which he already 
has theatres. 


A cable received last week by Milton and 
Sargent Aborn, at the Century Opera. House, 
confirms the engagement of Alfred Szcmlrel 
as conductor for tbe coming season of tbe 
Century Opera Co. 

Mr. Szendrtl Is a Hungarian and, although 
but a young man, is one of tbe foremost 
European conductors. Andreas Dlppol brought 
him to this country two years ago for the 
Chicago-Philadelphia Company, with which 
he conducted alternately with Campanlnl for 

a season. Since then he baa been directing 
grand opera at tbe Stnilt Theatre, la Ham- 
burg. Heforo he was twenty years old ho 
won scvernl prizes for muslclaushln there, 
and graduated with high honors. Ills first 
engagement as conductor was at the Cologne 
Opera House, where he remained for two 
seasons, and be aftcrwnrda went to tho 
other opera houses in Austrln and Germany. 
At the Royal Opera, in Berlin, ho was hon- 
ored by a decoration from the German Km- 


R. Voclckel. who has been directing tbe 
tours of tbe "Black Pattl" Musical Comedy 
Co. for the past seventeen years, announces 
that the eighteenth consecutive season will 
open at Goshen, N. Y., on Sept. 8, and will 
continue for tbe usnal forty weeks. The 
tour embraces only the largest of the one 
night stands In the 'South, Middle West and 
Texas ; a twelve weeks' tour from the Mis- 
souri River to California, and return to St 
Louis, where It is Intended to pick np the 
better class of the Stair k Havlln week 
stands, including; Chicago, Cincinnati, Louis- 
ville, Indianapolis, Dayton, Columbus, Pitts- 
burgh, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Newark, 
Brooklyn and Boston. 

The company this year, as in all others, ia 
headed by Madame SUsleretta Jones (the 
original Black Pattl), who enjoys the dis- 
tinction of being the greatest singer of bcr 
race ; "Happy" Julius Glenn, tbe Southlands 
favorite funmaker ; Will A. Cooke, tbe eccen- 
tric comedian, through whose efforts the 
three act musical comedy, "Captain Jasper," 
which was last season's vehicle with this 
company, wns so successfully given at the 
Grand Opera House last May. Because of 
this artistic triumph Manager Yoelckel has 
arranged with Messrs. Cooke and Glenn to 
collaborate In writing a new version of this 
same piece, in which many novel features 
will be introduced, together with entirely 
new and special songs, new stage settings 
and surroundings. 

The roster of the company Includes thirty 
of the best known performers In the busi- 
ness, a bevy of handsome stage beauties 
whose special duties will be to Introduce to 
tbe Southern folk the "turkey trot" and 
"tango" dances.

Seven companies will be sent out by 
Messrs. Gnskill & MacVltty this seasons-five

novels, made by the author and Elsbery W. 
Reynolds. One company of each is rehears- 
ing and will go on the Stair & Havlln time. 
"The Shepherd of the Hills" will open the 
Victoria Theatre, Chicago, Aug. 3, the follow- 
ing week going to the Imperial Theatre. 
"That Printer of Udell's" will open the Na- 
tional Theatre, Chicago, on the same date, 
later appearing at- the Victoria and the Im- 
perial. The other five, companies will go on 
tour Inter In August — one company to the 
Pacific Coast, one to Canada and the East.

Before leaving the city Miss Adams held 
a long consultation with Charles Frohman, 
during which plans were agreed upon practi- 
cally for tbe remainder of her career on tbe

list. When -she docs "The Little Minister" 
It will be her first appearance as Babble In 
ten years, and bcr first re-spp-aranco as

Judgo -Sulzberger, of tho Common Pleas 
Courts, Philadelphia, handed down last week 
two decisions of much Importance to the- 
ntrlrnl managers. In tho case of the prop- 
erly at llio Southeast corner of Iiroail and 
Thompson Htrecls, a swell residential dis- 
trict, the Judge decided that tho erection of 
a moving picture theatre there docB not como 
tinder tiio offensive occupation clause specified 
In tho deed. Tho owner of an adjoining 
property had begun such proceedings a few 
months ngo, and another Judge hail given 'a 
temporary Injunction restraining the owners 
from building a movie there, 

When the application canto up for a per- 
manent Injunction Judge Sulzberger reversed 
tho decision of his colleague, and decided 
that tbo owners could go ahead unit built. 
In his decision tho Judge Intimated that tin 
moving picture theatre could bo construed 
as being n nuisance, the sniuo could apply 
to every playhouse In tiio city, 

In another case Judge Sulzberger handed 
down a decision knocking out tho minority 
stockholders of the Wm. Perm Theatre, wlie 
Nought to prevent tbo corporation from giv- 
ing a renewal of tbo lease to Wm. W. Miller, 
at «22,r.(io a year. Another offer of fUO.OOO 
n year had been mado for tho thentro by 
Fred. G. NUon-Nlrdlltigcr, and on this the 
minority stockholders had based their suit. 

In his conclusions tbe Judge decided tbnt 
In the nbticnco of fraud the majority stock- 
holders of a corporation are entitled to con- 
trol Its actions, nnd especially since In this 
raso Wm. W. Miller, the manager of the 
house, had mndo a success of tho theafro. 
He Also added that the majority stockholders 
were not obliged to pay any attention to the 
fact that an outside party offered a greater 
annual rental tbnn the existing tenant, and 
their refusal to do so dors not furnish a 
sufficient reason to Justify the court in set- 
ting aside their action lit voting to renew 
tho lease.

We simply cannot resist the temptation ol reproducing the lync of the most wohderlul ■ descriptive moral ballad with 9 punch, that was overwinter ,n 
» "'"^ ' the history of; •'Songdom" ;.V; V: ' : ,. 




1st VEH8E. 

You made me think you cared for me, 

And I believed in you, 

You told me things you never meant, 

And made me think them true. 

I gambled in the game of love, 

I played my part and lost, 

I'm now a wreck, upon life's sea, 

Alone I pay the cost 


You made me what I am to-day, 

I hope you're satisfied, 

You dragged and dragged me down until 

My soul within me died ; 

YouVe shattered each and every dream, 

You fooled me from the start, 

And though you're not true, 

May God bless you, 

That's the ourse of an aching heart. 

2d VERSE. 
The dreams I dreamed of future joys. 
You smiled on, though you knew, 
Deep down within your faithless heart, 
They never would oome true, 
Still further on you led me till 
My paradise I eaw, 
Then with one word 
You banished all my hopes for ever more.

Found the house comfortably filled Mon- 
day evening, July 21, when Dcl-a-Phone and 
"The Big Surprise" were voted equal favor- 
ites after everything had been summed up 
for the evening. Del-a-Phone i« Just as real- 
istic an Impersonator of sounds as ever, and 
among his offerings were an automobile, a 
Dinning machine, tn "Injured" cur, a horse 
trotting on dry twre flrma and then Into 
mud. a trolley car, a crying baby, sawing 
wood and otlrer things that made his eight 
minutes' stay a -very welcome one. 

"The Big Surprise," a cabaret type of en- 
tertainment Including a company of seven, 
working the songs and chatter for the 
irrenter part of the act from the orchestra 
and boxes, "sprang" surprises In rapid (Ire 
fashion and claimed eight bows at Its finish. 
(See New Acts.) 

The Kendall Trio, musicians and singers, 
presented a Tery neat offering and did sur- 
prisingly well in tbe following position. (See 
New Acts.) , , 

William Cohlll and company presented an 
old story. In "Getting Even;" Clara May, a 
singing comedienne, pot by fairly well, in 
"No 2 ;" Qcorgo Wlchman, a clever clay 
modeler, did very well, and Payne and Lee, 
singers and dancers, closed strong with a well 
executed dance by the woman In Bllllkla 
makeup. (See New Ac(b for all four). 

John C. Hanson and company, In "That 
Boy Fritz," and Myrtle and Daisy, two real 
girls, were the main favorites on the Incom- 
ing bill of Thursday, 24. 

'■That Boy Fritz,"' with the action of tho 
comedy laid In a department store, shows 
Johnnie Hanson at his best In the role of 
the stupid German salesman. He has lost 
none of his cunning in being able to arouse 
the giggles and laughs, and his supporting 
company of two men and a woman gave this 
funny fellow capital aid toward) making Fritz 
the "laugher" of the program. 

Myrtle and Daisy sing as charmingly to- 

f ether as they look, and that's, considerable, 
'belr offering is fully reviewed under New 
Acts in this issue. 
Frank Howard, the young-old tenor, was 

?lven a cordial welcome, offered a very enter, 
alnlng monologue, and tang "When the 
Robins Nest Again, ' "Silver Threads Among 
(be Gold" an«f "Comin* Thro* the Rye," in 
fine voice, and looked capable enough to do 
a clog dance, but didn't bave to. 

The l.u Belles bave o very well arranged 
juggling act, entering on the "train," which 
explodes at Ptankyvllle Station, and trans- 
forms the car into a large table, carrying 
the woman of the act and the balls, hoops, 
plates, etc. It gave the act a tine start, and 
every Juggling stunt by each and the comedy 
bits by the man in tramp make-up were 
"roperly applauded. The woman Is a neat 
-resser and finds time to make a change, 
both knee-longth. Good workers. Good act. 

Faust and Faust, comedy musical "pro- 
fessors." played little during their stay. 
(See New Acts). , _ . 

Katberlne 8cott and her company talked 
and talked for fifteen minutes, and finished 
with a trio song and dance number. (See 
New Acts). 

"Tho Little Lambs," a sort of miniature 
musical comedy, Including nine people, fell 
■bort of "being a hit. (See New Acta). 

The Klnemacolor and Association pictures 
claimed as much approval as the majority 
of both bills.

(aim uccumb, mob.) 

A fairly good program Is being presented 
here this week, and was witnessed by a good 
sized audience, ■who were very liberal in 
applause. . . 

Dorothy Richmond and company presented 
Edgar Allnn Woolfe comedy, called "A Mid- 
night Marriage," and managed to make a 
good Impression. The work of Miss Rich- 
mond was heartily enjoyed, as was also that 
of her fine little company. 

Count -Beaumont, in black art and sleight 
of hand work, pleased. He has finely cos- 
tumed and staged bis little production, but 
needs to enthuse a little more speed In his 
work as It would greatly benefit nla per- 
formancc. ,. . . . 

I Hong Pong, a Chinese comedian, bad a 
hard time In convincing tho audience that he 
was a humorist, but nnclly succeeded, and 
walked away with several bows. 

Jack Anthony and Harry Ross, two Ital- 
ian comedians, put over a good line of talk, 
and at Its conclusion was rewarded by plenty 
of applause. 

Cbas. Howard, of burlesque fame, assist- 
ed by Jos. Ratlin* and Dorothy Hoyden, had 
no causs for complaint at the reception ac- 
corded them. The program stated that their 
sole aim was laughter ,and they surely got 
all they wanterd. Howard Is a clever co- 
median, and knows Just when his audience 
has enough. 

The Carl Bugen Troupe of nine men, in 
acrobatic stunts, show wbat experts can do. 
They show several new tricks that were big 
encore getters. 

Knlzo, a Japanese Juggler, In the opening 
'position, held his own. „ , 

Helen Goff, In a singing specialty; Mazlo 
King and her Terpslcfioreau Beauties, and 
Cecil Cunningham and company all presented 
new features. (See New Acts.) Jack. 

i , : l Academy of .Music (Robert B. Irwin, 

mgr.)— "Old Heidelberg,'.' with its beautiful 
popular German songs and Its touching little 
love story between a prince of the royal 
blood and the little barmaid, was nicely 
staged for this week's attraction. As Kathle, 
Prlscllla Knowles was a charming character, 
naive and lovable, and resigned to the sac- 
rides. Wm, J. Kelly was Karl Helnrlcb, 
eager and expectant for the new life In the 
university, and one of the Jolllest of the set, 
but fully alive to tbe responsibilities that 
came with bis position. Julian Koa was a 
fine character as old Dr. Juttner, the prince's 
tutor. La Verne Titus appeared as Lutz to 
good advantage, as did Joseph Crelghan, as 
one of the prince's fellow student). Richard 
Lyle, as Ruder, and Ed. Donnelly, as the old 
waiter. Others In the cast were : Wm. H. 
Gerald. Jobu J. Carroll, Fred. Merrick, 3. B. 
R. Keller, Ford Fenlmore, Glen Anders, Geo, 
Odcll, Harry Sothern, Bernard Thornton, 
Roy. Torrey, Maria Curtis and Lydla Kane.

The new revue at this Internationally fa- 
mous amusement resort Is the best show 
seen here since the opening of the bouse. 
There Is not a single Idle moment in It, and, 
although it Is at times lacking In comedy, it 
is always good entertainment. The musical 
hits are many, but there is no melody that 
will reach the whistling fiend. The show 
opened here without any out of town presen- 
tation and despite this it scored an emphatic 
success. That It will draw capacity audiences 
for some months to come was the opinion of 
almost every one present on tbe opening 
night, which, by the way, was ono of tho 
hottest of the Summer. Still, the show held 
them In their seats despite the fact that the 
final curtain fell around the midnight hour. 
The show is a kaleidoscopic review of some 
of the past season's successes, and the short 
burlesques on "Fanny's First Play," "The 
Silver Slipper," "The Argyle Case,'' "Peg o' 
My Heart," "The Sunshine Girl," "Broadway 
Jones," "Joseph and His Brethren," "The Poor 
Little Rich Girl" and others, all won Instant 
favor, Tbere Is the slightest thread of a 
story In "Tbe Passing Show of 1013," for the 
players are called upon to Impersonate vari- 
ous stage characters (the names of tbe play- 
ers and tho characters tbey portray are 
shown by tbe cast at the head of this notice). 
■Teg o' My Heart" falls Into the hands of 
ber aunt, Mrs. Potlphar, who wants to get 
rid of her. She employs Conspiracy Bill and 
Joe Garson to do the kidnapping, tboy take 
ber to the Mexican border where a revolution 
Is In progress. Here she meets and falls In 
love with Broadway Jones, who employes 
AsChe Kayton to protect her. 

There are novelties and dances galore. 
Indeed, with the exception of tho minuet, 
every form of dancing is Indulged In. Even 
tbe scenery "danced? 1 Ned Wayburn put 
over some new ideas In stage business and 
novelty effects, and may well place a wreath 
upon his head, for his work Is wonderful. 
The big feature of the show Is "The C'npl- 
. tol Steps?' which shows a huge white stair- 
case, with thirty-eight steps reaching from 
the singe to the -very fly-tops. Tho celling Is 
hidden from view by a huge canopy. When 
the performers appear on the top-most step 
all that can be seen Is their legs. Soon they 
descend and their whole bodies come Into 
view. Nothing more impressive has been 
seen on the stage In many moons, and the 
applause which greeted this scene must havo 
been heard at the City Hall, more than five 
miles away. The chorus girls and men 
march majestically down these steps. Tbey 
are followed in turn by dancers. Then came 
P.cssle Clayton, who was given tho great 
staircase to herself, and won much applause 
by her artistic toe dancing. 

Charles De Haven and Freddie followed 
on the ateps with a dance called "Tangle 
Footed Money Wrench Dance," which was a 
"knockout." It was a difficult dance, and If 
they do not break their legs during tho run 
of the show they will indeed be lucky. 

Wellington CrosB and Lois Josephine, who 
hove "class" written all over them, were 
warm favorites, and their dancing was at all 
times graceful. Many songs fall to Mr. 
Cross and while bo has not tho best voice 
In stageland, he rendered them all in good 
style. With Charles King he presented a 
skit, called "Won't You Come Into My Play- 
house," a burlesque on George M. Cohan 
and William Collier and their theatres, which, 
was liked Immensely by the huge audience. 
(The sketch was seen at one of the FTlnrs 
Club frolics, with Cohan and Collier.) Mr. 
King Is conspicuous throughout the produc- 
tion, and scored heavily in everything that 
he did. _. . 

Conroy and Le Malre were responsible for 
much laughter. Both of them played roles, 
but tbey got the most laughs when tbey 
did their vaudeville specialty In black face. 
Their cross-fire conversation about tbe in- 
surance business w.s a "scream." 

Swan Wood danced a sword dance In vig- 
orous but graceful style, and warm applause 
greeted her at Its conclusion. 

May Boley, Herbert Cortbrcll, Lillian 
Gonne, Tony Hunting, Corlnne Frances, Sid- 
ney Grant, Charlotte Greenwood, Lew Brlec, 
Harry Gllfoll, Molly King arc also promi- 
nent In the production, and all managed to 
score despite the fact that tbey have little 
to do, a fault not theirs. 

PIctOTlally, this latest of Winter Garden 
shows Is gorgeous. One of the most wonder- 
ful scenes is "Incandescent Lane," which 
faithfully reproduces Broadway from Forty- 
sixth Street to Forty-seventh Street, with 
all of tbe wonderful electrical advertisements. 
The costumes are the most beautiful Mel- 
ville Bills has ever designed, and the chorus 
girls are all visions of beauty, 

Lack of space prevents us from really 
doing the new show Justice, You must see 
it to drink in its beauties. That staircase, 
scene alone Is well worth tbe price of admis- 
sion (which, by the way, is 82.80 for the 
best seats this season). 

Of course, changes In the scenes will be 
made. As it stands now the show Is en- 
tirely too long. The curtain on tho opening

(a. r. boorrs, Mas.) 

Thero ts variety enough, in Oils week.'* 
bill to ploaso tho most exacting patron of 

To thoeo who admire splendid vocallsmt 
there is an artistic treat In listening to the 
superb efforts of Edna Showaltcr, the grand 
opera prima donna soprano, who is the latest 
recruit to tho ranks of vaudeville. 

Her debut here, on Monday, assumed tho 
form of an oration, during tho rendition of 
ber numbers, and also at the conclusion of 
her bouquet of melodies, when the houso rang 
with applause, and tho audience clamoring 
for more. (See New Acts.) 

T. Sot Barnes and Bessie Crawford sus- 
tained - the second position of the fine bill 
right up to tbe mark la their skit, "The 
Magazine Man and the Lady." 

It Is difficult Indeed, to attempt to coin 
new phrases wherein to extol the cleverness 
of Mr. Barnes as an original entertainer. 
There Is an lnexbauitlve fund of exbuoerant 
wit in bis composition which he sends across 
the footlights In a way that is clean and 
wholesome, and never In the least offensive. 
The act was, truly, tho laughing bit of Mon- 
day's bill. 

James T. Duffy and Mercedes Lorcnze got 
by very nicely in their musical and comedy 
offering, entitled "Springtime." It is a 
dainty act of comedy and song, and It goes 
With a snapplncss tbat never misses Ore. 

Alberta Moore and Myrtle Young, two 
pretty girls, who not only are captivating 
and capable In songs and7 dances, but cos- 
tume their act with extreme good tnate, were 
one of the most popular acts of the entire 
bill. Their dancing was excellent. 

Clayton Kennedy and Mattle Itooney were 
welcomed as old friends. In their sketch, 
"Tbe Happy Medium." Not an Item of tbe 
fun, which is almost Incessant during their 
set, was missed by the audience, and the 
result was a nice little hit for them. 

The -Five Suliys kept the fun going at a 
lively pace while presenting their comedietta, 
"The Information Bureau." It Is by far 
tbe best vehicle this talented family has 
ever appeared In. 

The Two Castllllans, In poses of classic 
art studies, scored an artistic hit, and were 
applaudco liberally. 

Hcrshel Hcndler, a European pianist, and 
Baisdcn, comedy cyclist, made their debuts 
here Monday, 28. (Sec New Acts, this 
issue). Old Timer. 


Thursday night, July 24, saw this theatre 
filled to its capacity, and a very good Mil 
was offered. 

Karlton and Kllford, two men, opened tho 
show with real good cartooning. Tho men 
have a neat appearance, and tho act was 
very well received. 

Keegan and Healy, a man and woman, In a 
neat singing and dancing act, got over nicely. 
Evcrs Wisdom and company, In a comedy 
skit; entitled "Bascballltle, certainly pleased 
everyone. Tbe company consists of two men 
besides Miss Wisdom. The act Is up-to-the- 
minute for laughs. 

Avellng and Lloyd, in a talking act, de- 
pended more upon "blue" Jokes than merit 
for their laughs, 

"The Bower of Melody" Is a very pretty 
offering of song and music. There are ten 
people In tho act, and tbey are all talented. 
Tbey carry their own director, who also 
shows be has a nice baritone voice by singing 
t lie 3ong, "To Have, To Hold, To Love." To 
repeated encores tbe act also sang classic 
and ragtime, and showed tbat tbey knew 
bow to render each with equal facility. Tbo 
act went over big. 

The Vander Knors, in burlesque magic, cer- 
tainly got oil there was out of their act. and 
the business with tbe mind-reading duck got 
many laughs. 

The Dunedln Troupe, three women and 
one man. do splendid work. Even though 
the man does all of the real bard work, tbe 
women are very helpful to tbo act, becauso 
of their "gingery" way of racing around. 
All told, they are a group of versatile bicy- 
clists and equilibrists, and tbe act was a 
big succees, 

Murray Bennett does some vory good work 
In tho way of telling stories and singing 
songs "Wbero Did You Get That Girl'" 
"When Yiddle, On Bis Fiddle, Leads the 
Cobaret" and "Pick. Pick On Your Mandolin, 
Antonio," were some of bis songs. Ho was 
a decided hit. 

Laypo and Benjamin, two men, in a com- 
edy acrobatic act, did some very good work. 
The act went over nicely. J>e<0.

Colonel Parker reports wonderful busi- 
ness for the Parker factories In turning out 
amusement devices. This week he took an 
order for a 815.0O0 carry-us-all, which goes 
to the Pacific Const, and an 18,000 machine, 
which will be used In Kentucky. He says 
business Is better thnn last year, which sur- 
prises him very much. He Is building a 
bcnutlful three-liorso-nbrenBt machine for the 
J. C. Kepler Shows, now at Dayton, p., with 
electric lighting and a gasoline engine, and 
Is constructing two big carry-us-alls to go 
with carnival companies. It Is really mar- 
vcIoub that in the course of a very few 
years Colonel Charles W. Parker, who is 
generally known by the carnival fraternity 
as "America's Amusement King," Iisb es- 
tablished a business In Leavenworth In the 
construction of amusement devices which 
keeps his factory, the largeBt In the world,

was In Chicago this week, and a caller at 
The Clipper office. Brlce Is a globe trotter. 
To-day finds him In Chicago, but Just like 
as not he'may be In London next week. He 
Is -very popular with the show people, and 

xnent ventures are also proving profitable, 
In spite of a general tightening up, which has 
affected all show enterprises to a more or 
less degree. 

Fred. Morgan, of the 101 Ranch Wild 
West 'Show, was a Clippbb caller Friday, 
26. Fred, is looking as hale and hearty as 
ever, and Ib enthused over the wonderful 
business which he says the 101 Ranch Show 
is playing to thi3 season. 

A brief note from Lew Nichols conveyB 
the Information that fisblDg Is good at Min- 
nehaha Springs, Wis., where Lew has a big

spare the time to avail myself of bis Invi- 
tation to spend a few days in this sylvan re- 

The Gentry Bros.' Shows ought to get 
a lot of money In Chicago. During their last 
engagement In this city they cleaned up a

Chicago folk are hungry for the Gentry form 
of entertainment and will torn out In great 

Harry S. Notes, general agent of the 
Great Patterson Shows, is making his tem- 

fiorary headquarters In Chicago, and in an 
ntervlew with the writer last Tuesday, said : 
"There is no use disguising the fact that the 
carnival season so far this year has not been 
one of an extraordinary character in the way 
of financial returns. Most of the shows 
were handicapped early in the Spring by 
extremely Inclement weather conditions. But, 
even In fair weather the receipts so far are 
not up to previous years. I have made a 
very careful study of the crop conditions in 
various parts of the country and, while they 
are none too bright In North ana South Da- 
kota and Western Kansas, yet Nebraska is 
in splendid shape, and reports from Texas 
indicate a bumper cotton yield. Canada baa 
had her share of tented amusements this 

the' far West. Returning from Rochester. 
N. Y., where he was a delegate to the Elks' 
Convention. His Honor, the Mayor, spent a 
few days as the guest of Al. G. Barnes, and 
during his call here was enthusiastic In his 
praise of the big wild animal circus, which 
Winters in Venice and is now playing this 
section of the country for the first time. 
Mayor Holbrook Is a power on the Pacific 
Coast, and Is a friend of the show people. 
He is past Exalted Raler of the Elks in 
Venice, and 8tand3 high in other orders with 
which he Is affiliated. He Is a charter mem- 
ber of The Showmen's League of America. 

Speaking of AL G. Barnes' Show, I wish 
to devote a few lines in referring to my 
recent visit with this organization. First of 
all. I want to say that Al. G. Barnes is a 
showman In all that the term implies. He 
is surrounded with a staff of competent 
executives. His big show performance is a 
delight — different from that presented by 
any other traveling aggregation. Naturally 
ambitious to make his show a predominating 
power in the field of entertainment, Mana- 
ger Barnes is continually adding to his fea- 
tures and equipment. The fact that he Is 
not burdened with an excessive salary list, 
as the major portion of his performance is 
provided by animal actors, there is not a 
chsnee for him to lose, but every oppor- 
tunity to amass a vast fortune. More power 
to him. 

E. C. Talbott stin holds the record for 
securing the greatest number of applications 
for memhbershlp in The Showmen's League 
of America to this date. To be exact, seven- 
ty-eight representative showmen have come 
Into the fold through Brother Talbott's In- 

In delivering a big top In nine days for 
the Al. G. Barnes Show, the TJ. 8. Tent and 
Awning Co., of Chicago, haB broken all rec- 
ords. I tell you that with Neuman and 

celpt of an official communication Inviting 
The Showmen's League of America to hold 
Its conclave at the Panama-Pacific Exposi- 
tion, in San Francisco, in 1915. 

Wjhting of our friend, Willard Backen- 
stoe, I must say that he Is In right at 
Belolt, where he owns a beautiful home and 
Is erecting a first class theatre, the only one 
of its class hi that community, which Is to 
open early in September with a line of su- 
perior attractions. Backenstoe is a hustler, 
a money maker, and an all around good 
showman. He is a charter member of Toe 
Showmen's League of America. 

It orieves me beyond measure to learn of 
the serious Illness of Mrs. Frank Albert, who 
has been brought by her husband from 
Arizona and placed in a hospital In St. 
Louts. Mrs. Albert has been ill for a long 
time, bat it Is to be sincerely hoped that a 
change of scene and environment may bring 
her back to health. 

John B. Warbbn Is as busy os a bee these 
days, and is as elusive as the "Will o' the 
Wisp," but now and then I have a chance 
to discuss show matters with htm. and It la 
gratifying to know that he is putting away 
plenty of dough this Summer which will help 
to keep the wolf from the door in the years 
to come Returning the other day from a con- 
ference with his associates In control of the 
Hagenbeck-Wallace Show, Warren reported 
good business. 

Ed. Jbssop, Identified with the Maxwell 
Shows, was a welcome caller at the Western 
Bureau ot Tub New York Clipper while 
transacting business in Chicago this week. '. 

I am In receipt of an interesting letter 
from W. A. Atkins, of Elgin, HL, who takes 
a great interest in tent show affairs. He 
nays : "In talking with the employees of sev- 
eral tent shown organizations this Summer, 
they all seem -to deplore the fact that the 
big shows especially seem to find It necessary 
to make such long runs, not only on Sunday, 
but on 'week days as well. They say tt 
would be much easier for them if they could 
reach a town, say about S.30 In the morning; 
and have some little tune to take things a 
bit easy. This would also give the working- 
men a little time to rest during the after- 
noon hours before It was necessary to tear

C. W. Finnet, general contracting agent 
for the Gentry Bros.' Shows, Is In Chicago, 
assisting general agent Ben Austin in per- 
fecting arrangements for the Gentry Bros, 
engagements In and around this city. 

Privilege Manager Bartlett, of the Kit 
Carson and Buffalo Ranch Show, was a wel- 
come caller this week. He reported great 
business and personally looked the part, 
for he was lit up with a bunch of sparklers 
rivaling the Koblnoor. E. L. Brannan, tho 
general agent of the show, was also here this 
week, In conference with Manager Tom 
Wiedemann, who states that It Is quite prob- 
able the Kit Carson oufit will have a long 
Reason, closing In the South late in Novem- 

Mas. Nat Reiss was In Chicago this week, 
doing a little "window wishing," and Inci- 
dentally setting Nat back for a lot of lingerie 
and other feminine knldk-naeks. She very 
graciously favored The New York Clipper 
ofllce with a cell. 

Tom North Is a familiar figure on tho 
Chicago Rlalto these days. For some time 
he has been la charge of the Great Ray- 
mond, whose entertainment at White , City 
has been a leading feature. I presume that 
Tom will be leaving us sooner or later In ad- 
vance of a standard theatrical attraction, 
for he haB the happy faculty of connecting 

himself up In a proper manner with the open- 
ing of every Fall season, 
IT is rumored that Ralph Kettering will 

divorce himself from press work in Chicago 
and enter tho political arena, cither at 
Springfield, III., or at the National capital. 
Kettering hae made hto mark In Chicago pub- 
licity circles, and we will hate to lose him.

conditions in Begins, while fully appreciat- 
ing the fact that It bas been 'ginned' to 
death by clrcoB, Wild West and carnival at- 
tractions this season, I beUeve will be good

Nat. M. Reiss, proprietor and general 
manager of the Nat. M. Relss Famous Shows, 
was here this week, and reported that his 
business in the South was not up to expecta- 
tions, but he did well after crossing tho 
river, and that Evansvllle and Glnton, Ind., 
turned out well, and that the opening at 
Chicago Heights, 111., was fair. Further 
bookings for the Nat. M. Relss Famous Shows 
will take them to the extreme Southwest, 
playing the New Mexico State Fair, at Al- 
buquerque, and the annual celebration at 
El Paso, Tex. Manager Relss bas closed for 
the Arizona State Fair, at Phoenix. He will 
play Tucson and Bisbee. Mr. Relss states 
that this will probably be his last season In 
the carnival business, ns he may sail for 
Australia Doc. 1, as national organizer for 
the Moose for Australia and South America. 
He is very enthusiastic over this proposition. 
He met Mr. Davis, one of the big moguls of 
the Moose order, and with him will take in 
the Moose convention at Cincinnati this 
coming week. Mr. Relss is a very popular 
man In the tent show business, and enjoys 
a nation wide acquaintance with city officials, 
amusement committees, newspaper men and 
professional folk. 

E. C. Talbot, general agent ot tho Con T. 
Kennedy Shows, has been making flying 
trips In and out of Chicago for the past

Shows, In Canada. Last week he closed a

A vert cordial letter from General W. F. 
Cody reached me from Lincoln, Neb., con- 
veying Information that he Is enjoying ex- 
cellent health. For e time his friends, who 

num. A Bailey and Rlngllng Bros.' ebows 
have made long runs, depriving tbelr em- 
ployees of a much needed Sunday rest, the 
weather being warm In all sections." 
Vic Hugo, -the well known, vaudeville and 
all around amusement purveyor, with bead- 

reports which emlnatcd from the South to 
the effect that the General was a very sick 

man. These garbled press accounts, enlarged 
upon by the provincial newspapers, caused 
the General no little annoyance, and the 
thousands of his admirers throughout the 
world will be glad to know that he Is In 
splendid fettle. 

A. A. Powerb, general promoter for the 
Rice & Dore Shows, has sent me a photo- 
graph of a monster lithograph stand posted 
by htm In Lincoln, Neb. There seems to be 
an ever growing tendency to put out more 
lithographic paper In billing carnival enter- 
prises, and Powers knows the value of 
printer's ink. The fact that he received his 
early education under the tutorship of E. C. 
Talbot and Con T. Kennedy speaks volumes. 

Colonil, Cuarleb Andress, first vice 
president ot The Showmen's League of Amer- 
ica, visited the Barnum A Bailey Show at 
Elgin, 111., last week, and was delightfully

the executive staff of the big show. It was 
naturally gratifying to see so many Show-

and good Judgment can accomplish in Hie 
profession of entertainment. He started out 
from Toledo, O.. about twenty years ago, at

Entering the circus business he soon became 
a side show manager, and leaving the Bar- 
num A Bailey Greatest Show on Earth la

atre proprietor. Everything Vic has touched 
has turned to gold with but one exception, 
that of the Australian tour of the Hugo 
Bros.' Colored Minstrels, which broke about 
even. Hugo will be heard from more and 
more as the years advance. He Is a demon 
for work, and In his lexicon there Is no such 
word as "can'L"

Tter.inn Journal, where he received his earlv 
atccatlon. A am of culture, gifted with 
BBiirir.xtlon ana i facile pen, Coiey has es- 
tablished himself In the hill of tent show 
lame and has done no Inconsiderable part 
xo molding the opinion of the .public in faTor 
tf tented amusement, 

The Western Bureau of Thb New Yobk 
Cupptb was honored last Tuesday when 
John D. Tlppett, of New York, paid us a call 
while In Chicago, on his way from 8an Fran- 
cisco to the Eastern metropolis. John has 
tad many years of practical experience In 
many branches of the show business. It will 
le remembered that he was very much In 
evidence at tbe St Louis World's Fair, and 
his statement that "the Panama-Pacific Ex- 
position in San Francisco will undoubtedly 
excel anything of Its character eter arranged 
in the world" may be taken with a degree of 
assurance. John D. Tippett Is a bundle of 
nervous activity. He Is a tireless worker 
and toll of ideas. For yean he has made it 
• point to develop his mental muscle In 
evolving stunts which, have proven profitable. 
Blnce leaving the tent show field John has 
teen mixed op in a rather prominent way 
In the moving picture business, and he Is on 
tbe job all the time. 


After a protracted sojourn In the Anti- 
podes, where he met with great success In ex- 
ploiting amusement attractions, Charles G. 
Klipatrlck is in Chicago, and favored the 
Western Bureau of Thb New Yobk Clipphs 
with a call this morning. At White City. 
In Sydney, and Luna Park, In Melbourne, 
Australia. Mr. Klipatrlck will introduce the 
motordrome, which is proving the prize 
money making feature In American parka 
and with the carnival companies. He for- 
warded the plans for the motordromes to 
tils Australian commissioner. John Kohl, 
who Is looking after the, Klipatrlck Inter- 
ests until Oct. 1, when Mr. Klipatrlck will 
return to Australia. Mr. Klipatrlck has 
taken a five years' lease on the race tracK 
and fair grounds in the city of Danville, III., 
and. starting next year, will put on ar> 
annual exposition. According to Mr. 511- 
Patrick, Australia Is one of the best show 
countries In the world for real attractions. 
The people are ready spenders for entertain- 
ment. While Klipatrlck did not see fit to 
divulge the exact nature of an attraction 
which he Is arranging for the Panama-Pa- 
cific Exposition, he declared that he would 
be m 'Frisco In 1916 with a novelty,

Baba. Deloama.v arrived In Chicago Thurs- 
day, 24, from Moose Jaw, Can., stopping off 
•n route to visit the Great Patterson Shows 
at Brandon, Manitoba, and at Winnipeg, 
where he conferred with railroad officials in 
reference to the movement of the Herbert A. 
Kline Shows from the Dominion into Dee 
Koines, la., for the Iowa State Fair, a Jump 
of 1,000 miles. During a call at the Western 
Bureau of Tun Clipper this morning, Baba 
said: "While conditions In Canada are not 
of the best and the country has been over- 

{dayed with circus, Wild West and carnivals, 
t is gratifying to Inform you that Delgarlan 
ft Zlnney's Beautiful Orient, with the Her- 
bert A. Kline Shows, has played to nice busi- 
ness so far this season, and now that tna 
Kline Shows are to furnish the amusement 
attractions at several of the leading State 
fairs in the States, I believe that the tour of 
1913 on the whole will size up well with pre- 
vious years. Conditions in Canada are 
rattier peculiar. The banks are not loaning 
iLoney on real estate and, as you are aware, 
Canada has been boomed by real estate men. 
There Is a financial stringency in the North- 
west and a surfeit of amusements in the tent 
•how line. The weather has been exceed- 
ingly inclement this season. Bain and cold 
most of tbe time. The Kline Shows No. 1 
had a blowdown In Swift Current." ..... 

Delgarlan and Zlnney have Borne ambitious 
plans for next season. They Intend to put 
©n "The Streets of Cairo, 1 ' with camels, 
elephants and other attractions; In fact it 
win be a carnival in Itself, where Oriental 
meals can be had and Oriental fights seen. 
There will be one hundred people with the 
aggregation. Mike Zlnney. with his magic 
and Omar Blta. with her spectacular dances, 
are making a big hit la Canada.

A large corps of artisans are rapidly trans- 
forming Miner's People's Into one of tho 
niftiest stop* in next sesson's burlesque Itin- 
erary. The hitherto somewhat sombre tone 
of this erstwhile home of "high class" drama 
and opera has been been changed to a light- 
er, daintier color scheme. In which light 
greens and gold predominate. New carpets 
and draperies have been Installed, a smoking 
room and lounge replaces the old cafe at the 
right of tbe lobby, end many other Improve- 
ments of a distinctly modem character have 
been added. The traveling manager and 
agent have not teen forgotten either, as la 
attested by a neat little office, furnished with 
typewriter, stationery and many other con- 
veniences, which has been constructed for 
the use of these usually neglected martyrs. 
The stsge and dressing rooma have beea 
thoroughly renovated and brought up to the 
minute, and, In short, no detail making for 
the comfort of both audience or performers 
has been overlooked. The People's opens 
Aug. 18. with the (Happy Widows Company. 
Frank Abbott, who has been for ths past 
two seasons manager of Miner's Empire, In 
Newark, will be In charge, with Sam Granat, 
as treasurer; Frank Howie, stage manager; 
Carl Williams, musical director,

In The Brooklyn Baale Al. Beevea ventl- 
lates his opinion of buriosoue ss follows: 

"Unless some Inducement In the way of 
better terms or percentage Is offered to ths 
better class of burlesque shows, I believe 
that many of them wilt be permanently 
dlven from tho Held. 

"According to present arrangements the 
show with twelve girls and three prlnlpala 
gets exactly the an me percentage of the gross 
receipts aa the show with thirty-five chorus 
girls and six principal}. Our scenery snd 
wardrobe expense Is five times what it was 
formerly, and our salary list la double: but 
we ell get treated alike. Unless some Induce- 
ment Is made to the really good producers 
they will not bo able to go much further. 
The goose that laye tbe golden egg will die 
of starvation." 

BOBLBSQtra BtraiNBss steadily caowiNo, »

"la the recent combination of the two 
circuits It waa corned to drop severs' of the 
less proatafcle houses of botli circuits. In 
order that tbe net results of the alllaaae 
might be as great as possible. The bur- 
lesque business) Is steadily on tbe Increase. 
Each year shows a slight gain over any 
other year. 

"It le the Increased cost of putting on t«a 
good burlesque shows tbst diminishes our • 
profits. Although I did the greatest busi- 
ness that baa ever been done in burlesque 
last year, I made 87,200 less profit than I 
have on soma previous seasons. People de- 
mand better scenery, better costumes and s 
higher class of show generally. 

7 'We find that we are drawing a better 
class of people to our shows now. I remem- 
ber when a business of 82,S0O a week In 
Pittsburgh was phenomenal. Now a business 
of $7,000 Is not considered anything out of 
tho ordinary." 

Asked about tho effect of musical comedy 
on burlesque and Hoe veria, Mr. Beevea 
emphasized tho fact that tbe burlesque com- 
pany remains tho same throughout the aea- 
aon, while tho musical comedies substitute 
secondary casts. 

"We give the same Bhow everywhere," be 
said. "But the musical comedies, as soon as 
ther are through with tbe Broadway sesson 
begin to put In inferior pcoplo, so that when 
the show takes the road In earnest It Is by 
no means tho same show tbst played on 

The advent of "movies" with cheap vaude- 
ville, Mr. Reeves believes, will have no ef- 
fect on burlesque.

no»» Plnyeaa, l« "Jut Married." 

lI,0CT 8MMT, JOLY 25. 

A four people act, which takes place In 
the borne of a young couple who cannot 
nSree about money matters. The husband 
l B afraid that his wife Is "falling" for Suf- 
frage, and he will not give her any money, 
but he doesn't tail to drcas himself. The 
wife finding she cannot get any money from 
him calls In an old clothes peddler, and to 
him' she sella all her busbandB clothes for 
?30 In the meantime she has to call In 
a. nlamber to Ox a leak in the bathroom. 
While the plumber Is at work the husband 
returns, and seeing a man's coat on the chair 
nccusea the wife of belrg false. Then the 
plumber comes from fixing the pipe, and 
'when the husband sees him he points a gun 
nt him, and wants to know what he Is doing 
in his wife's flat. The plumber thinks he Is 
••up against" a "badger game," and tells 
them so. After a little talk the husband 
is convinced who he (the plumber) really 
is. Then the peddler cornea back for his 
coat which he left on the chair, and the 
husband and be have words, but he will not 
dve up the clothes he bought from the wife 
1!n tll the husband pays nlm the full amount 
(with Interest) that he paid for them. The 
husband does this, and then the peddler 
elves him a piece of advice, telling him If he 
dues not dress bis wife nicely some other 
fellow will. 

The act runs fifteen minutes, on fall stage. 
The men who played the plumber and the 
peddler did the best they could with the 
material, but the other two characters 
lacked the touches that one looks for hi 
parts of the kind they played. 

"Just Harried," with a little brushing up, 
will be a good enough act for the small 
time. Pete. 


"The Big Surprise." 


After a couple bad seated themselves In 
balcony box (left), and one girl bad doae 
same in opposite box, the principal woman 
of the troupe opened with a song, but was 
Interrupted by a "peanuts and candy" boy In 
the aisle, and then asked to "quit" by the 
"guy" with Maggie up In the box, "ao's he 
could bear what the fellow was peddling." 
Then followed an argument between the 
candy kid and the guy, Joined later by Mag- 
gie's "For Oord's Sake.' 1 and even the girl in 
the right band box. Then a "Nance" usber 
butts In to cease the quarrel. It ran foo long 
before the girl In the right balcony box led 
"That Naughty Melody," Joined by all. Then 
all did the exit but "the guy" upstairs, who 
remained to warble "When I First Met You" 
to good results, and; was repeated by three 
girls In the orchestra aisle and the principal 
woman on the stage. 

This was followed by the girls "cabaret- 
ting" up the aisle to accompany "Back to 
Carolina," and Joined in a march to and up 
on the stage to finish with a bit of tango by 
the three couples, led by the principal 
woman. The act was surprising and, al- 
though not new, will do very well as a nov- 
elty on this time. Constant rehearsals and 
a cat to the opening "quarrel" between the 
box party and the candy boy will make It 
more effective. Eighteen minutes, In one.

PfiOCTOB'8 Twenty-third Sheet, July 21. 

After opening in two, seated upon a flower- 
trimmed swing, in a duet with "Sly American 
Keauty. Rose," the man started another num- 
ber and was Joined for an exit dance 
l.v the woman in white cowgirl costume. 
She followed with a hit more dancing In the 
"Western rig," but we didn't quite under- 
stand the reason for the number. It seemed 
misplaced and, In fact, did not harmonize 
with the rest of the act. 

Before a drop, In one, he followed with 
"That Society Bear," while she changed for 
the next and final number, in two, revealing 
her made up as a BlUlken, In tan Varna 
Yaoia suit and BUlikeu head. After be 
started "The BlUlken Man" she came from 
tbe "perch" and did a wooden shoe dance 
that proved the best thing In tbe act. Ho 
returned for an exit dance together. Poor 
arrangement is all that mars a good act. 
Could stand more of the fllrl's dnnclc-g also. 
She Is clever on the wooden soles, and he is 
capable of being more than the "feed" his 
present part shows him as. Fourteen min- 
utes. Tod. 

Kendall Trio. 

This refined musical and singing offering 
did very well following a cabaret act on the 
bill. The act is composed of two women and 
a man, nnd opens with one of the former 
playing a harp, tbe other kneeling at her 
side singing, and tho man playing a 'cello, 
using "Mother McCree" very effectively. 
This was followed with a duet by tho gray- 
wlgged young woman playing tho harp and 
the man on the 'cello, with "The Boaary," 
under spot. Then a solo by tbe singer. 
Joined by the harpist (without tho gray 
wig), and the man, on 'cello, to accompany 
the number. 

This was followed by a selection on the 
harp by the blonde girl, and the act closed 
with the latter accompanying a well rendered 
cong duet by tho other two in elderly make- 
up. Tbe act is well arranged and, although 
minus even one "pop" number, got over big. 
Tbe man and woman sing well together and 
the young woman does excellent work with 
the harp. Twelve minutes, In two. Tod.

LIBERTY, Ba00iU.SK, N. Y., JDI.I 23. 

Assisted by a man la black silk knicker- 
bockers, these two well formed trapeze per- 
formers accomplished some surprising fcat» 
of skill and strength on the swinging bars 
and rings. One stunt done by the dark girl, 
that of holding the man on one foot wnllo 
suspended by tho other from the foot hold 
above (split fashion), was worthy of the 
applause accorded. .. , 

Both girl) are graceful artists, nnd their 
finishing offering, one hanging by the back- 
nock hold and the other by teeth, they woro 
spun around fully a dozen tlmea without tbe 
least sign of strain. . . 

With up-to-date paraphernalia nnd re-ar-

About eleven minutes, full stage. Tod.

Two clever young musicians, a harpist 
end violinist. They opened together, and 
then .the smaller boy was beard to fine re- 
sults on the harp, under spot. Then the 
violinist returned, and after another senti- 
mental one, under npot together, they romped 
Into a medley of popular tunes that cleaned 
up a nice little hit. Each is well up in 


the knowledge of, the Instrument he plays. 
they blend their talent "Just right."

«Tlie Little Lnrabs." 


A miniature musical and "talky" comedy 
In two scenes. The first, In two, showing 
the yard of a girls' boarding school, and 
five girls in white middle blouses, blue 
bloomers, white stockings and one or two 
pair of honestly tchUe slippers, being put 
through a calesthcnlc drill by the school 
"mnrm." Upon her exit the two principal 
girls showed they did possess fairly good 
voices in leading a number, which was fol- 
lowed by two young men appearing at tbe 
top of "the old garden wall" and their en- 
trance upon "forbidden territory." A aoug 
led by the principal girls and the boys, then 
exit the chorus of Three, leaving the two 
couples to pull some love sighs and make 
dates for nine o'clock "that" evening. 

But the professor appeared over that same 
old wall later, dated up the marm for nine 
also, and then, after lie sang "I was All 
Uight In My Younger Days," the scene 
changed to tbe dormitory of tho lassies. 
Here, in pink and white costumes, they sang 
a "good-night" song and adjourned to the 
bedrooms, made visible through the trans- 
parent set, nnd changed to pajumas in time 
to welcome the boys. Then one of the latter, 
made up as the "scbonlmurm" when 'bis 
girl" gave him a pair of R. & Q.s and a dress, 
and after tbe professor bad made bla en- 
trance, shoeless, and was turned out of Ills 
fiancee's room, and stole the mirror behind 
which the disguised lad stood, why, -when 
"teacher" came out to admire berseir pre- 
vious to the date "at nine," the female- 
togged cbap had to go through the old look- 
ing glass stunt to fool her, but his perform- 
once at this show was very much on time. 
Bliss Prunes, as the girls called her, made a 
discovery that the mirror "was not, pulled 
a faint, the Jig waB up, but the two prin- 
cipal students made known they were en- 
gaged to tbe intruding males, and a song 

eQ Tlie dark haired principal girl behaved 
more like a performer than her other four 
partners, and easily looked tho neatest The 
tenor singing youth should pay just as mucli 
attention to the shoes as tbe rest of his at- 
tire. They were In need of a coat of boa 
ami. On one occasion the staging sounded 
good, but "the little Iambs" need a Ilttlo 
"pepper" sprinkled In their work to live up 
to the good work of the couplo doing the 
schoolmnrm and professor parts. The lat- 
ter gave the best performance of the entire 
act. About twenty minutes. Tod. 

Helen Goff. 
Proctor's Finn Ave., Matinee, July 28. 
This handsome and shapely young woman, 
recently prima donna of "The Enchantress," 
had a hard row to hoe Monday matinee 
at this house, offering her singing specialty. 
The fault of her act lies la tbe fact that she 
has made a very poor selection of songs, 
only one, "I Have You," a ballad, being 
suited to her voice. -She tried a ragtime 
number and proved that she does not posscsB 
the qualities) in putting this style of song 
over. . ... 

Miss Goff hns a very sweet high soprano 
voice and, with the proper material, would 
most likely do better. 
The act runB about twelve minutes. In one.

Pboctor's Twenty-tuibd Street, July 24. 

This company of three, two women and a 
man. talk their audience for fifteen minutes 
straight. Beforo a drop representing the 
home of "Dr. Clark nnd his daughter, Daisy, 
manicurist," tbo two girls meet, cbat and 
exit. Then, one Billy Taylor enters, and 
from a letter cxplulns that ho is doing a 
favor for a friend of bis ia looking up a 
young woman named Clark, who be (tho 
friend) succeeded in securing for a wife "by 
mall." One of tbe girls, Rose Clark, returns, 
mistakes Billy for his corresponding; friend 
nnd demands marriage immediately. Her exit 
and the other. Violet Clark, comes back and 
spies him, and' also puts In a claim for his 
future services. Exit Vi. enter Rose, enter 
VI., exit Billy, leaving the girls to scrap It 
out, and wben be returns be tin Jh that both 
are the wrong party, as he is looking for 
another flower-named girlie, Daisy, and the 
trio close with a song on suit cases, and 
finish with a dance. 

All three work well and make a good ap- 
pearance, but fifteen minutes steady lingo 
for mistaken Identity Is entirely too long, 
and should be broken with a song. About 
seventeen minutes, In one. Tod. 

Myrtle and Daisy. 


These two good looking (blonde and bru- 
nette), well dressed girls, bnve a sound idea 
of bow to entertain. Both possess good 
voices, and their solos and duets were equally 
well rendered. 

Opening together with the blondo at tbe 
piano and her dnrk partner standing on a 
chair behind the upright, "Million Dollar 
Doll" proved a good number to Introduce 
them, finishing the song with a few neat 
dance steps. Then the piano girl, In a change 
of gown, sang a solo, accompanying her- 
self, and followed with a clever imitation of 
the Trinity Chimes oa the keys. 

Then tbe brunette, in a creation gown of 
two hues of blue and a chic looking winged 
hat, rendered "That Parisian Ball/ hi real 
■Frencliy manner, to big results. A change 
by 'both to soft colored yellow and blue ac- 
cordion plaited ankle length dresses, and 
their duet "I Love the Moonlight" equaled 
all their other numbers in the sweetness of 
Its rendition. 

It is a great big clever girl act that ia a 
singing feast from note to note, and the girls 
have a taste for costumes that blends har- 
moniously with their talent. About twelve 
minutes, in one. Tod.

nnd followed this with a duet, bassoon and

Her reception wan cordial in the extreme, 
and the prima donna's first vaudeville ap-

For her first selection she rendered un 
operatic aria, for which she played her own 

Then, with tho orchestra, she gavo the 
Pnlonnlso from ''Mlgnon," nnd concluded her 
selections with "Tbe Last Itone of Summer," 
all of which she rendered most charmingly. 

It ia hardly possible that Miss Sbowiiltiir

even though her performances thereon may 
be limited. Old Tiitn:r.

David llclasco returned from Europe July 
20, after a mooth'» absence, looking better 
for his Journey. In an Interview ho said: 

"I have hnd a very Instructive visit, 
and particularly enjoyed my studies of tbn 
theatrical nudlenccs In London, Ports anil 
Berlin. I went to these cities to see tor my- 
self how tho pcoplo were taking tbo plays, 
and also to Hettlu tho question whether I was 
right or wrong 'n my own method of follow- 
ing nature closely, 

''At the Drurr Lane, Jn London. I -witnessed 
tin- dancing of NUinsky, and ho Impressed 
me more as a bird than as a human being, 
I also saw tlio revivals of 'Diplomacy' and 
'The Second Mn. Tnmjucray,' and was much 
Impressed with the acting of Mm. Patrick 
Campbell, who looks younger and la more of 
an nrtlKt thun ever before. In Parbi nnd In 
Berlin I found the ploys, as a rule, whole- 
•nine, ar-d tho audiences Just like tho au- 
diences Avorywbero else, made up of men 
and women who prefer tho natural and 
closc-to-naturo plays, 

"Personally I plead guilty to being' 
broad materialist, balding my curs as vloso 
to tho ground as possible. In Kngland I 
found that It was untrue that there was a 
dearth of good plays In that country. How- 
ever, I dl<T note a change In the public pro- 
ferment, the pvoplo having tired* of those 
plays that I might properly term tho 'tea- 
cup' kind. The French I found to be tlrod 
of tho triangle, and they want it changed or 
modified, In Berlin I came in contact with 
tlio rmpreaalonlst school, which consists of 
nothing for a background — Just a Ilttlo grass 
and a treo bearing a melon. The Uormans 
will welcome, a change from this, too. 

"Am for myself, I have not followed any of 
tlieso now Ideas, and I have no Intention of 
starting a new stylo, although at times I 
have hopod to write oa Impressionist play, 
Just for a rent, 

"I shall continue to go to tho people for 
my plays. I shall go among tho poor, the 
lowly, tbo suffering, into tbe hospitals and 
into tbe prisons, tuo byways, the alleys, the 
flluinji. Tho gospel of God's sunlight is and 
will continue u> bo my religion. In my work 
I want to live close to Mod. That has always 
been my Idea. 

"As for my own plans, I decided before I 
went away what I was going to do next sea- 
son, but f have not made those plans public, 
and will not do so until I have had a chance 
to look around and seo What tho others are 
doing, to find out if tbey are going to pro- 
duce anything which Is like or resembles 
anything that I have planned. There 
have lieeii limes when I buvc gone so far as 
to have the scenery for a production all pre- 
pared, nnd then 1 decided nut to produce the 
play nnd ordered tlio scenery destroyed." 

Mr. llcliiKco Htated that as soon as he had 
looked tho field over ho would resume hi* 
work where he left off on his departure, 
and would soon be ready for bla first produc- 
tion for the Hen son of 1018-14, 
"SU VMEC Dlllh" 

litis Is (he title of Chauncey Oleett's new 
piny, now rehearsing, with Pauline Moll- 
neaux as leading woman.

est releases In tW Sellg program. The new 
arrangement starts on Aug. 11, on which

drama based upon the exploits and romanco 
of a world-famous hobo, supposedly the no- 
torious "A No. 1." The famous tramp la 
this picture Is known by tbe cognomen of

story Is considered by many who have seen 
It at advance exhibitions to be the best pic- 
ture of its kind yet released by the House of 
Belle. The title of tbe drama Is "The Flight 
of the Crow." ___ _ 

On Monday, Aug-. 18. the Sellg Co. will re- 
lease the second of tbe series of regular two-

The accident was caused by tbe premature 
explosion of a barrel of gunpowder, which 
was to be used with a slow burning fuse in 
a picture, called "Between Two Loves."

Theatres, the nation over, arc at tho pres- 
ent time much exercised over tho quality of 
posters Riven them by manufacturers gen- 
erally. This is a fact well evidenced by the 
aiianlty of complaints that dally pour Into 
ic offices of the big film manufacturing 
companies. Recent examples of tbe work 
offered by George Klelno show that at least 
one manufacturer has responded to call for 
better lithographs. When tbe paper was 
prepared for "Quo Vadlsr Mr. Klelne was 
so struck with Its possibilities for the mov- 
ing picture theatre, that on lamcdlato ordor 
was placed to cover all future ICIclne re- 
leases. Tho utmost care Is given In the se- 
lection of appropriate subjects, and the me- 
chanical work Is easily tho very beet on the 
market. This has been done at considerable 
extra expense and entirely for the exhibitor. 

Mr. Klelno announces that In the future 
another make of film will bo released by him 
hi America. This Is tbo product of tho Cello 
Company, of Rome, Italy, a new corporation. 
Whose releases have never before been seen 
In America. Mr. Klelne was so Impressed with 
ynat he saw In the new company before ho 
left Europe that contracts were made to re- 
lease the Cello Company's pictures regularly 
In this country. 

Beginning Tuesday, Ang. 12. Mr. Klelne 
will release a two reel feature every Tuesday. 
"Mong Fu Tong," the title of the first re- 
lease, Is a sensational story of a band of 
Chinese thieves and their dissolution by an 
American coyboy employed for the purpose, 
fne addition or the two reel every Tuesday 
Is the result of a steady demand from the-

ceived to seo this film, so tbe Pilot Company 
arranged for tho private exhibition at the

and all proclaimed the film to be ofie of the 
belt features witnessed In a long time. There 
was a treat deal of applause at different 
parts of tbe picture, especially wbere the

Jdxe 1ft. 

There lias been a sudden collapse of whit 
Ls called "the London aeasocf." After the an- 
nual cricket match, between tho boys of Eton 
and Harrow schools, which always means 
t busy night at the theatres and music IiqIIh, 
everybody who could do so hurried away ou 
i vacation. This withdrew the last prop 
from the theatres depending mainly on 
fiiHhlonaulo support, ana there are closures 
■ 11 'round. There is, however no great 
difference to be noted in the attendance at 
the pdpular music halls, especially the revue 
houses. A long time ago, the iHlpyodxamo 
people commissioned Lcon.Cavallo to prepare 
the music for an citravaeania concocted 
by Ue C'ourv.llle and Max Pembcrton, who 
wrote "What Ho! Ragtime," but thcro will 
be no need, clearly, for a successor to that 
delectable delight these many months, so the 
neighboring Prince of Wales' Thcatro baa 
been secured, and bore, Immediately tho Leon 
Cnvullo show will be worked off. 

America bns sent ns the orfly novelty of 
the current week — 'The Barrier," namely, 
which was produced at the Strand Theatre 
on Thurjilay night. The average Kngllsh 
audience Is perfectly unable to appreciate 
Hie color feeling ; so "The Barrier" has 
iinicli to contend against. Many of the 
critics feel called upon to exercise tliclr wit 
on Its ultra-melodramatic sentiment and sit- 
nations. Still "The Harrier" Boomed to 
make n popular Impression. The company 
Is local, and Its attempts on accent are 
innuy. lint Mattliesan Cnng, who has been 
long absent from the West Wild, made a hit, 
nil right, as the French. Canadian. Poleoa 

Our university authorities lmvc no great 
kindness for the stage, and will not be molli- 
fied by the sketch entitled "Oh I Oh I 
Daphne," which was produced at the Tlvoil 
Music 'Hall on Monday. If, however, Hart- 
ley Carrh-k, the author, nnn Frederick Nor- 
ton, the composer, have not produced a very 
dignified or dependable picture of varsity 
lire, they certainly have contrived a moat 
amusing farce, ami Daisy Lc liny makes tbo 
most of it. The hero, n high spirited under- 
graduate, was conscious of having run as 
near the risk of expulsion as he dare. He 
sat late into the night considering bis case 
when there suddenly appeared in bis rooms 
e vivacious girl, who offered him marriage- 
Just, as she explained, to secure her escape 
from a less attractive husband. It was 
pointed out lo her that ber discovery in such 
circumstances would complete the disgrace 
Of her unwilling host In the eyes of the col- 
lege authorities. Hut this only served to 
Increase ber mlscblcvousucBS. She attacked 

cated of Carrlck 1 What novelty there is to 
place at Mr. Pembertoa'a credit lies in a 
Bklllfnl adaptation of the play to the needs 
of vaudeville, and in some picturesque ef- 
fects Ingeniously introduced. Carrlck Is seen 
on Drury Lane state, playing Blchard, and 
fights a duel with an Insolent aristocrat, 
whom he properly humiliates. Seymour

A writer about ragtime declares tbat It 
threatens the whole moral code. Says he, 
"Dcrutlntzlngly criticised, everyone of the 
songs Is Insidiously perverting. They arc In-

ment of the martial tie, of triviality in the 
relationship of sex."

For years the circus In England has been 
a dead thing. Nineteen out of twenty of the 
so styled "Hippodromes" never had a horsa 
past their doors. They run a poor kind of 
music ball show. But there seems to have 
been quite a remarkable revival of Interest 
In what Is really the most typical of English 
entertainments. The proprietors of the big 
tenting concerns report the best business 
known for years this season.

Theatre next Saturday night, when tbla the- 
atre will re-open for the regular season. 
Several members 'of the cast are already 
known to local playgoers for their appear- 
ance In plays that have bad long runs In 
Chicago. Mr. Cort tried out "The Elixir of 
Youth" several months ago In Los Angeles, 
with Oliver Morocco's stock company, at the 
Burbank Theatre, and the play became so 
popular that It continued to draw amused 
audiences for a period covering nine con- 
secutive weeks, a long run for that city. 
All the fun la occasioned by situations and 
complications brought about by the belief of 
an old professor that he had solved the 
problem of perpetual youth. The action li 
said to be fast The company will have 
these players : Frank Bacon, who for thirty- 
six weeks appeared as the old druggist in 
"The Fortune Hunter," during the long run 
of that play in Chicago: Amelia Summers, 
who was with "Fine Feathers" at the Cort ; 
Harry Mcstaycr, who appeared In "The Es- 
cape ;" Winifred Bryson, who has been ap- 
pearing In "The Tlk-Tok Man of Oz ;" Jo- 
seph Urennan, George Barnum, Marie Taylor 
and Betsy Bacon. 

The "Quo Vadls?" picture* will enter the 
Whitney, now knows, as the Joe Howard 
Comedy Theatre, also on next Saturday night. 
The theatre has been re-decorated and refur- 
bished for the new season. The musical 
comedy version of "A Texas Steer" will open 
the rebuilt La. Sallo Opera House on Aug. 
18. On Aug. 25 "Stop Thief" -will come to

(Special to The New Yobk Clippeb.) 
Chicago, Saturday, July 26. 

At the Majestic, this past week, we saw a 
hill much better than we expected, and much 
better than we are ordinarily accustomed to\ 
see during the warm weather months. Wm. 
Hun-ess and his company of thirty songbirds, 
headed the list with a delightful singing and 
comedy number. Gertrude Barnes, "that 
wonderful girl," caused a cultured riot among 
the audience, who applauded madly the ef- 
forts of this clever performer. Carl Mc- 
Cullough was great, as was also Mullen and 
Coogan, and the Aliens, -A good size house 
witnessed most of the performance, due, par- 
tially, to the Palace Music Hall being closed 
and Its favorites naturally turning towards 
the Majestic for amusement. 

The royal entertainment started the min- 
ute the show began, for Thomas Handera 
and Arthur Mlllls, two of "England's eccen- 
tric dancing pianists," who appeared In the 
first position, were right there with the 
goods, which were delivered the way the 
audience likes them. Tbe soft shoe dancing of 
this pair was eccentrically perfect and it was 
this part that made them so popular, al- 
though they did numerous other little stunts 
up In good style, a bit of hat Juggling, com- 
edy piano playing and the likes. But it waa 
their dancing that tbe crowd liked best of 
all, and for which they were forced to en- 
core. Nothing heavy but an excellent opener 
for a good solid show. 

Dave Lane and Chas. O'Donnell, calling 
themselves "The Lunatic Tumblers Looping 
tbe Bumps," gave an entertainment which 
waranted their appearance in a position 
other than that which is usually given this 
style of act, either first or last. They 
Jumped and cavorted around as frisky as a 
couple of colts, half of the act taking a com- 
edy role and the other half straight, aa 
usual. But the comedy was not borcsome 
In lieu of the good work. Tbo comedian took 
so many hard knocks and falls that It gave 
the audience a headache to even watch him, 
which they seemingly did very closely. The 
other half, although not being quite as much 
In the limelight, executed uome very difficult 
feats with apparent case. It was good, al- 
though the tumbling around of the comedian 
became a bit monotonoua before the close, 
and a lot of It could have been cut out, 
leaving Just as good, if not a better offect. 
They received a good hand. 

Carl McCullough surely takes pride In his 
personal appearance, for not a detail was 
overlooked In bis make-up, and be looked as 
spick and span as though he had Just 
emerged from a glaSB cage. He dresses like 
a regular business man, the acme of neat- 
ness and trlmness. But Mr. McCullough 
does other things besides look nice, for ho 
Rings popular songs In a likable way with a 
likable voice, using "Pullman Porters On 
Parade," "Just a Little Haln with the Sun- 
shine" and "Melody Man." all of which 
were applauded satisfactorily. Better than 
all else, however, he tells us about a charity 
basaar held for the Actors' ■ Fund, at which 
he was floorwalker. As he tells us the etory 
Carl gives excellent Imitations of Harry 
Lauder, Eddie Foy, George Munroe and 
various other actor and actress celebrities 
who attended. The Impersonations without 
a make-up show up Mr. MoCnllougb's talent 
ton marked degree, while the material 
which he uses Is not at all lacking In efful- 

Although Mr. Allen Is "sort of art ellpsa 
affair In appearance, he most assuredly car- 
ries with nlm an air of naturalness while 
M LlM stage. He Is assisted by his wife, In 
a little skit, called "She Had To Tell Him." 
an affair which makes Mr. Allen show up so 
noble and grand and Relf-aaerlflclng that 
everybody liked him, even though he was a 
fat man. It Is a novel idea which these 
SBL5 wry ?, ut J n th . elr Pl«yiet, and JUBt the 
Oilng exactly for Mr. Allen's ability. And 
no dooen't lose a chance. Tho act closed 
with a nice hand. 

Now for "That Wonderful Girl," Gertrude 
Barnes. She wore the most exquisite gowns, 
and proved herself a distinctive Blnger and 
a clever, bright nnd breeiy performer. There 
£!I? 5?S n Jttcr comediennes who, In the 
past, did what Miss Barnes did, and have 
boon cheered and applauded, so that tho char- 
acter she portrays Is not new to us by any 
tteans. But MIbb Barnes and her style are 
new, so that Is enough. You become at once 
quite at homo with this charming entertain- 
er whose grace and personality afford her

treated to a rare musical . melange of much 
better calibre than vaudeville Is accustomed 
to hearing, as well as excellent travesties of 
well known characters In the operatic Held. 
It affords the spectators the best kind of 
•port It is truly an astonishing and ad- 
mirable act for vaudeville and the latest 
thing In novelties. Mr. Ilurress' wprk Is of 
great value and distinguished in attain- 
ments, as is also the rest of the cast 

Everybody thought the fun was over with 
the close of the preceding act; but James 
Mullen and Alan Coogan came back and kept 
the audience howling with laughter. These 
boys call their arrangement "Odd Nonsense," 
Which It fulfills In all senses of the words. 
They are clever, original artists. Mr. Coogan 
•cored tremendously with his eccentric dan- 
cing, while the comedy of Mr. Mullen will 
be remembered for some time to come. 

Klutlng's Entertainers proved to be as 
the program stated, the ''absolute limit In 
animal Intelligence.'' Mr. Klutlng has gath- 
ered about him a remarkable group of per- 
forming cats and dogs and other animal 
talent' The astonishing feature of the af- 
fair was the fact of having a pigeon perch 
upon the head of a dog, while a snow white 
rabbit ran under and Jumped over a line of 
dogs. Truly a marvelous collection. Kvery- ' 
body stayed to watch It all.

?ram, a good snappy show, consisting of 
ourteen acts (two shifts of seven acts each) 
Is now being offered. As popular a pastime 
as the "movies" have come to be, Manager 
Eberts decided to leave them from the bill. 
In view of the fact that so many of bis regu- 
lar patrons were forced to sit through a repe- 
tition of the picture which they had, In all 
probabilities, seen In some house devoted 
to that form of amusement alone. With the 
new form of show there '.a action every 
minute. The house 1b doing a nice Summer 

The first half of this week's entertainment, 
well balanced and full of variety, might 
well claim as Its headllner Lew Hoffman, 
comedy Juggler, and a gentleman whose tal- 
ent In this lino has enabled him to play 
Llgger time. Perhaps some of tho "regu- 
lars' remember him as occupying a spot on 
tho Majestic program a short while back. 
Lew Is a competent as well as corniest Jug- 
gler, and affords more than an ordinary de- 
gree of amusement with his many nats, 
which he handles like the professional that 
he is. He pleased. In all probabilities, mora 
than any one else on the bill, and closed 
with a nice hand. 

Among others on the list was Davis and 
Castle, two gentlemen who play on the saxo- 
phone and piano. While not any of the num- 
bers offered by this duo were to be "spoofed," 
still the feature of the affair was the piano 
playing by half of the turn, who rippled 
over the Ivories in quite a masterly fashion, 
and wore his hair long, which rather assured 
us that he was good as a pianist. The other 
devoted his efforts to tbe saxophone with 
fairly good results. The stunt made a good 
straight musical act for tbe bill, and was 
accorded a pleasing amount of applause. 

It la very seldom that two gentlemen ap- 
pear and sing three or four popular songs In 
straight succession and call It an act, bat 
that Ib what Messrs. Falrman and Fnrman 
did, and obviously got away with It all right 
(They open by appearing In full dress and 
singing "Mammy Jinny's Jubilee," stop a 
minute for some sign of approval from the 
crowd, and then start off with "I Love Her. 
Oh, Oh, Oh," continue with "Salvation Nell" 
and close with "Bobbin' Dp and Down." 
They Introduce no patter or Individual sing- 
ing, like the average run of these sets do, 
nor do they Indulge In any dancing. The 
boys are good, however, at putting over 
popular songs In vaudeville style, backed 
by fair voices, and they retired In good grace, 
it would make nn excellent act when It cornea 
to boosting Dongs, 

The Seymour Duo, the only song and dance 
team on the bill, were a little bit lacking In 
punch" to cause much of a panic or excite- 
ment To begin with, neither one can sing 
to any marked degree, and while every now 
and then the feminine portion of tbe num- 
ber showed pretty good form as a come- 
dienne, still she had no support whatsoever, 
and our hopes were again spoiled. Tbe 
young lady also offered an Impersonation of 
Anna Held singing "I Just Can't Make My 
Eyes Behave," but outside of bearing a few 
French e's every once In a while, It did not 
attract much attention. The soft shoe dan-

wire for ua the straight naif giving an ex-

however, the work on the wire was easily

that they had a new man In action, got

acre was something lacking to moko It stand 
out superior, even though parts shone. 
..Another act often heard of in Chicago la 
the Bonesettl Troupe, drat class tumblers 
end acrobats. These three gentlemen and 
one lady run through the usual routine of 
stunts in tip-top fashion, with a scattering 
here and there of originality. The youngest 
members of the four executed several 
intricate flops, nnd one especially that called 
forth applause — doing a double flip off the 
shoulders of his partner into a chair held 
on the shoulders of a third party. It was 
neatly done.

or the Colonial some evening at about the 
hour of eight, where they may witness one

yrowds clamoring for admittance, adults and 
Juveniles, rich and poor alike recognize that 
nowhero In the city can they obtain three 
Jours of such high calibre amusement for a 
top price of twenty-five cents as the Co- 
lonial. Fortunately Manager Harrison in 
continually on the Job, handling the crowds 
in a systematic manner, so that there Is no 
more delay than Is absolutely necessary, 
and every one receives fair attention. 
it Is good proof of quality when the waiting 
list stands patiently for a quarter of a block, 
Knowing that their trouble will be more than 
■Hft [ np for when they are Inside. 

while all variety performances have, of 
course, their dull moments for everybody, 
feme liking this part, others that, yet the 
latter halt of this week's program was quite 

bits of the classics that savor of pure art 
and a high quality of talent. Their ability 
is not to be challenged. The selections of- 
fered were a worthy treat In comparison 
With the many ragged character songs which 
are forced upon vaudeville managers and 
audiences almost without a let-up; the at- 
mosphere at all times was pungent with re- 
finement and appealed to the betteryct more 
critical class of music lovers. Here and 
there a bit of sentimental ballad to act as 
the dessort after a heavier meal. AH in all, 
It Is a most desirable act for a high claes 
bill, and Is worthy of enjoying a very pros- 
perous future. 

Bush and Shapiro offered a general rough- 
house which the crowd evidently thought was 
immense, for they were eitrcmcly free and 
easy with applause. Half of the act Is a 
fairly good Hebrew comedian, who does not 
Impersonate so much as he caricatured, and 
who sings "Yiddlsha. Ball" and accomplishes 
"Ylddiaha" glides, much to the delight of the 
spectators. The other half sings a bit now 
and then, talks "tough" to his partner and 
Is a general all round utility man for the 
act It was slangy fun, but scarcely brilliant 
comedy. The boys handle themselves very 
well, however, on the stage and received aa 
good a hand as any number on the bill. 
They are top notchere for this class of 
vaudeville, but would have to add a little 
more sparkle before being able to appear 
only twice a day. The act la not a now 
one, by any means, to Chicago. 

Pally and Pearson exhibited' to a marked 
degree ability as a contortionist and Iron jaw 
artists, and at the same time fully demon- 
strated that it takes a comedian, to wit over 
comedy and not a contortionist. They ac- 
complished a number of interesting ana ap- 
parently difficult feats, although the affair 
moved alowl* at times and it seemed aa 
though the two artists -were stalling us a 
little. The comedy Is hardly worthy of 
criticism. They received a fair hand for 
their hard work. 

Alex. Chrlstensen, a pianist of merit, who 
Is known Chicago over for bis good work in 
this line, occupied a spot on the bill In which 
be pleased with bis usual gusto and vim. Mr. 
Cbrlstensen bas a distinct style of playing, 
his repertoire Including both classic and pop- 
ular pieces, for be is master of both. Mr. 
Chrlstensen is by no means a stranger to the 



imbued with music and fun, and Chicago amusement seeking public, although 
1 be classed as a show to he always changes bis "turn to fit the occa- 
sion. He was forced to take at encore as 
well as numerous bows. 

Harry Leone and Annie Dale offered an' 
attractive costumed few minutes of opera. 
The singing was mediocre, the gentleman of 
the act seemingly straining bis singing a bit, 
for his voice naturally le quite melodious, 
while the lady could easily bave been im- 
proved noon. However, there were many 
good points to offset a few trivial faults, and 
on the whole the affair waa quite enjoyable 
The conversation at different times waa 

on the whole should 
be recommended. 

Mile, Ameta. who presents a most pleasing 
spectacle to the eye with her fire dancing, 
occupied a spot during the entire week, and 
round little difficulty in getting a Just re- 
qulttal for her work. In fact the audience 
at this honse liked her dances much better 
than they did when she played Palace Music 
Hall bill a short time ago. The act occupies 
e full stage surrounded by a set of mirrors 
Which reflect Mile. Ameta in a dozen different 
places and In as many different angles. From 
the centre of the stage various colored lights 
■re thrown upward upon the artist, which 
give a very attractive effect to her dancing 
and appeal to one's aesthetic sense. Mile. 
Ameta presents three distinct forms of 
dances. The number closed with an apprecia- 
tive hand. 

Another act held over for the entire week 
wss that of the Great Buckner, trick bi- 
cyclist This chap presents a number of 
new tricks for this style of act exhibiting 
no little display of skill and daring, and keep- 
lag things continually on the move. A little 
comedy now and then, nothing deep, but 
which at least takes up a little time. Mr. 
Buckner has the habit of making a trick 
look extremely difficult by making a "grand- 
stand" miss every once In a while, ana then 
with a determined look doing it right They 
fall for it readily and It usually helps in the 
applause. Mr. iiuckner really deserved more 
applause for his hard work than what was 
accorded him, although bicycle acts have lOBt 
a great deal of their power to eiclte. 

One of the best straight singing turns that 
has been heard for some time at this house 
Is the City Quartette, an act more or less 
new to the regular Chicago patrons, and an 
act that any manager should be glad to ob- 
tain for a cultured bill. Immacnlateiy

No. 3. Tell Taylor. 

The writer dislikes to encroach on a busy 
mane time, and It was with considerable 
timidity that he tbrust his shrinking form 
within the portals of Mr. Taylor's private 
office. In Cohan's Grand Opera House. 

"My object In calling, Mr. Taylor, la to

mind answering a few questions?" 

"Not at all," ho responded cheerily, plac-

"What's the outlook right now?" 

"Well, It looks like the Giants and Ath-

"You travel a great deal, then?" 
Oh, no, only during the Summer months, 
end four or five months during the Winter. 
The rest of the year I put In here." And 
again he sighed.

Olxtblard, Ohio.— A sreit Sondajr town and 
atondsr two big houses. Met two hoys from my 
home town (Wichita, Kansas), Biiph and 
John Hsnklnson, who put auto polo on th« 
nop. They play here Aug. 25 to Sept. fl- 
uty, bojs, auto polo Is somtt exciting game. ] 
asw the first game that they e»er n!ayeiJ lsst 
8mniDcr la Wlchlts, and they played It In an 
alfalfa, held. Tbe game arts played by Evans and 
King, and It wss tucfa a great game that since 
then they bate played all the big clues. Including 
aladlson Square Garden, Is New York City. 

Bert Worthlngton, of Olereiand. Is a large stock- 
holder In the euterprlse, and he Is s regular fel- 
low. Sir. and Mrs. Lltdiell were guests of his 
Sunday erenlng, and finished tip by going for a 
long auto ride. I bear they went some, as Des- 
perate Carroll wss at tbe wheel, and he Is con- 
sidered the best driver In the auto polo gsmc. 

John Warren, one of the stockholders In the 
Bagenosck-Wsllace Show, joined us Sunday, so 
tow I think we have seen them all. 

Willis Cobb, who la now an old gentleman, but 
years ago waa a press agent with this show, wax 
a visitor, and certainly bad a good troe. The old- 
timers surely do like to see the wblte tops. 

Floyd King, our little live wire press s;ent. 
was back on the show digging up new press stuff. 
He Is slways on tbe Job. 

Geo. Conner,) leave* for Chicago to-night, as he 
lust got word that bis wife la very 1U. So that 
leaves our all-around nun, Joe Lltcbell. to tare 
charge while George Is away. You csn't lose Joe 
anywhere yon put him, ss they semi for Joe to 
get the train loaded, and on a Isle morning to 
pnt op tbe tent. Then someone relit, "Joe, go 
o\»r there and atop that Ogbt" And besides all 
this being train-loader, canvas man and equestrian 
director, Joe gets time to do two sets in the big 

lK'b Knapp end Chris Cornalla visited the ahow 
Tuesday. Cbrla COrnalla was one time under- 
atacder with the 81k Cornalla,. 

Dave Beehl.r. the Chicago agent, wss on Wed- 
nesday looking the acta over, snd I hear, booked 
quite a number. 

Phil. King, that jolly Joker. Joined the show 
to-day, and pnt some new clown stunts on tbe 
m in. 1'hll. U sure there «n those lugr stilt". 

Carl Lester and Cbas. Bell have some arguments 
about parade as they are tbe two marshals. 1 
think Catl bas Charles going now, but don't know 
bow it it going to turn oat, ss both want to be 

We play Toledo Thursday, and it Is golaf. to 
be a big day for the Davenport-AlcOree Troupe, 
at that is their horns town. Also Nettle Greer's 
borne. Sol. Beno'a brother came over la a seven' 
passenger auto, snd they are all going borne after 
tbe show to-night. I tee them loading the auto 
with plenty of eat* and drtcks, so it will ba soma 

Well! Here we are In Toledo— the big day at 
last— and the MeOres'a and Nettie Greer art car- 
Lately busy folks, entertaining relatives and 
friends, tad they have yards of them. Between 
shows, Mr. and Sin. McOree Invited a few of 
their friends up to dinner, and they sure bare 
tooe floe home and also a swell ring barn, and 
say, that dinner. Wo all ate ao much fried 

chicken snd home-cooked food that we were cer- 
tainly pudlng that night when we wero working. 
After the show at night wo all went to their 
house again and had s swell Dutch lunch and all 
the champagne and other good things to eat and 
drink. Tbe McCree's certainly know bow to en- 
tertain. Wo stayed so late that the cars hail 
stopped running, so Beno 'phoned snd bad four 
sutoe come and take tbe folks to tbe cars. It 
wss a great day. Among the guests were: Jos 
Lltchell snd wife, Geo. Connors, Paul Ooudron. 
Olga Eeed, Bert Cole and wife, Joe Ooyle and 
wife, snd Little Joe; Pete Cornalla and Emma 
Cornolla, Nettle Carroll, Kid Kernard, Phil King. 
Warren Irons and Quiet Jack Moore. It was 
some housetull, but plenty of room for all,. Obi 
I almost forgot Mr. and Mrs. Bedlna were also 
there. I tell yon, boys. It was bard to keep track 
of wbo was there. 

In tbe afternoon and evening performance. 
the McCree's and Nettle Greer were presented 
with the most beautiful baskets of dowers that 
1 ever saw. It wta a great doy for Iheto. 

And now I must tell you of the big event that 
we have Uvii waiting for no long, the birth of 
a little daughter to George snd Mary Corners. 
George had Just returned from Chicago, and about 
ono o'clock a telegram came and everyone gath- 
ered around, and when the telegram was opened, 
there was one big cheer that could be heard for a 
mile, ftecree is some happy Icy, snd we all with 
the happy littlo family the very beat of lock. 

George says tbe nut Is off for twenty-tour bouts 
snd every thing goes. He Is going to give a big 
masquerade ball In honor of bis eight pound baby 
girl. Will tell you all about It when It happens. 

Psnl Goudron. the Oblcaau representative of the 
Sullivan at Obnaldlne circuit, came back with 
George Comers from Chicago, and will stsy with 
tbe show until Saturday night. He la having a 
great time with tbe show, and is a floe fellow 
and In for anything. Saturday night, a crowd 
Is going Into Chicago to see the new baby. Mary 
Connert and tho 'Ttty" one are living with Mrs. 
Paul Ooudron (Anna Gonners), to Stdie Couriers 
and George, the happy father, Paul and Albena 
Sutton nod Mrs. Bedlna are all going, and they 
can hardly wait until tbe time comes. 

Al. M laser's band wagon Is getting to be to 
agent'a wagon, aa Wednesday rare Wheeler rode 
on It, and Thursday Paul Goudron was on. Both 
wore uniforms. Paul was on tbe elonhsats. and I 
think we will have him on a camel Saturday. 

Poor Lin. Sooner gets peeved about hit prop. 
broom, at be can't find It when be want. It. 
Held your tuck, I,ln, as the stage Is not level. 

Gee, fellows, this Is tbe moat Jolly ahow In tbe 
world. If you haven't caught it yet. Just coot* 
over and make It a visit. 

Henry Stantx was a visitor In Toledo, his boms 
town. He la not trooping; this season, hot will be 
teen with tbe IlAgenbeck-Walltoa Show next sea- 
ton with a lot of new dope. Ha hat trooped 
with all the big show's and fooled many a person 
with bit old lady make-up on tbe hippodrome 

Say, boys, It coats money to have a rare coming 
in from parade. 1 mean Harry Cornalla, Earl 
Kelley Oevene, Pblllp Eddy, English Delevantl. 
Bam Nevrxoan. That's right, Leo, take yonr time, 
at yon will toon base to buy the baby shoes.

aamo old way. 

We bad a little excitement Friday, after parada 
Philip Eddy tnd Oarl Lester settled a little srgu. 
nutnt with their lists. Eddy Is toatlng a nice 
black glimmer around, and they knocked over 
several trusts before tbe fight ended. 

The new management hss changed the salary 
day. They pay Saturday Instead of Sunday, which 
makes it better for everyone, don't It, folks? 

They toy tt McCree's party Pete, who likes hit 
sle, after he had several, soinorne rang la a glass 
of beer on him, an he drank It, and did not 
know but what It waa ale. 

Pete. Victor Bedlnl snd Get-RIch-Qnlrk Wsl- 
llngford ended by going to sleep on the front 
porch. Could not stick any longer. But Old Folks 
was on the Job. 

Tbb Natw Yobi Ot.ltpsa hot sure put Itself

Our ball team was defeated to-day by tbe Ann 
Arbor team, 13 to 1, Some of tbe hoys osy they

If a Pittsburg atogle wtt lost would a Pith- 
Under? Now, that will Co, Jack. 


Capt. Jack and Georgia Kearney, champion rifle 
and pistol siiots, are tho very nest I hnve seen. 
Capt. Jack Kearney does tho most dlHIcult pistol 
shots while standing on bis bend. Miss Georglo 
does all the tricks that made her famous, esiie- 
dolly her feat of breaking glu.a balls wlillo riding 
at full apeed. 

Speaking of Interesting and picturesque cbarsc- 
ters. Uncle Don Itoylngton, tbe trainer and owner 
of the 110,000 troupe of mulct, 1, cerli-.lnly the 
most Interesting. He Is t wonder, nuil his mules 
are the very last word In horse and mule train- 
ing. He la without a doubt the only man that 
has ever trained mulct to go to bed, the saiae as 
a high school horse.

matters worse, we could not get out of town 
owing to the railroad belDg washed away, 
bo bad to remain there a week, but Mr. La

happier sight when we commenced to steam 
out We have a complete new outfit or- 
dered, and will start up again a week from

out In the Spring. No mall could reach us,

Tlio lny public sca7ccTy~rcallzcs just to 
whnt proportions miniature burlesque has 

frown In tbc past few years, but this fact 
9 readily seen and appreciated in the ranks 
of tho professionals. 

The houses appear to have struck just tbc 
popular chord of fancy that in Hungers have 
so long striven to reach, and now that tho 
Idea has proven a success, the senders have 
changed their tunes and are rapidly getting 
to tbo other side of the fence la an endeavor 
to rench the fruits on tho Inside. 

The men who arc really tbc originators 
and promoters of (his highly successful en- 
terprise arc Sol. Flrhlcnbcrg and Sidney II. 
Scllg, sole owners of the firm, the Fichten- 
bcrg-Scllg Company, Chicago. 
. Mnklng tliclr advent In the production 
business us owners of the once highly popu- 
lar penny arcades, they rapidly branched 
out nnd are now justly regarded as the most 
successful showmen In the city of Chicago. 

They own and operate the New Chicago 
Theatre, U. S. Music Hall, American Then- 


tre and the Gem Theatre, names that arc 
synonymous of success, laughs, pretty girls 
uud striking scenarios, 

No metropolis in the country can boast of 
houses that universally please to any greater 
extent than thoso managed by this highly 
progressive firm. 

In addition to the regular tabloid shows, 
feature acts that bave never been Been on 
any but the largest and most well known 
circuits are appearing lc these houses from 
ten to twenty-live weeks' running, nnd the 
popular prices of ten and fifteen cents do 
not seem to be any drawback to the most 
discriminating clnBses. 

In these houses true democracy Is reached, 
Where Hie laboring man, having finished with 
Lis dny's work, rubs elbows with the pro- 
fessional and business men and women of 
the highest standing, and unite lu applaud- 
ing the deserving features that are placed 
before them. 

All credit Is due to Sol. Llchtenberg and 
Sidney II. Sellg, fathers of miniature bur- 
lesque stock.

The announcement of the V. B. O. and 
Martin Deck that they would do no further 
business with the H. B. Marlnelll Agency 
lias brought offers from several of the inde- 
pendent circuits to affiliate with MarlnelU's 
International Agency. The Sullivan & Con- 
sidlne circuit is one of the large Independent 
organizations which are announced, among 


♦ ■> 

several others, as having joined tho Mar- 
lnelll camp. 

At present Marlnelll is supplying acts for 
the Eva Tanguay Co., the combination head- 
ed by Gertrude Hoffmann, Lady Constance 
Stewart Richardson and Mile. Polaire, as 
well as several road shows which John Cort 
will put ont. 

II. n. Frazee announces that he has prac- 
tically completed his plans for the beginning 
of the coming season, so far as new produc- 
tions are concerned. They include a new 
comedy, two musical offerings the bookings 
of bis Longacre Theatre, New York, and Cort 
Theatre, Chicago, and four companies on 
tour in "Fine Feathers," for all of which 
preparations are now in progress. 

•The Silver Wedding," by Edward Locke, 
has been selected to re-open the Longacre, 
Monday, Aug. 11. Thomas Wise Is to be 
featured In the principal role, and the .com- 
pany will include: Alice Gale, Florence Ma- 
lone, Edna Temple, Violet Moore, Lillian 
Rose, Frank McCormack, Gulanlo Socola and 
i/ouls Esposit _ . . _ 

On Sept. IS. at the Nixon. Pittsburgh. Pa., 
Mr. Frazee will produce "The Coquette" for 
the first time on any stage, with Anne Swin- 
burne featured in the prima donna role. 
Harry B. Smith, who has many recent suc- 
cesses to his credit, is now putting the fin- 
ishing touches on the libretto, while Victor 
Herbert has contracted to deliver the score 
before the middle of August, when Miss Swin- 
burne returns from abroad for rehearsal. 
The production, which will be staged under 
the direction of Frederick Latham, com- 
prises two acts, the locales of which are first 
In England and later in Paris. Miss Swin- 
burne io to create the role of an English 
tchoolglrl who develops an unlooked for tem- 
peramental nature, which leads her Into 
many apparently compromising escapades. A 
cast of unusually capable and well known 
principals are now being assembled for The 
Connette," which will also have Its New York 
premiere In the "Longacre Theatre. 

Considerable Interest attaches to the an- 
nouncement that Mr. Frazee la to produce 
"lole," made Into a libretto by Robert w. 
Chambers, the novelist and author of the 
book, with the assistance of Ben Teal, as 
collaborator. The Idea of visualizing In a 
musical comedy the characters In Mr. Cham- 
bers' "nouveau art" satire is considerably 
enhanced by the announcement that William 
Frederick Peters Is to supply the score. 

While no definite date has been announced. 
Mr. Frazee has engaged Frank Lalor, or 
'Tlnk Lady" fame, for the principal com- 
edy part In "lole," the New York premiere 
of which depends largely upon an available 
date at the Longacre Theatre. 

Although its first season is Btlll In pro- 
gress, the completion of which will comprise 
Just an even year of performances, 'Fine 
Feathers," with its all star cast. Including 
Robert Edeson, Wilton Lackaye. Rose Cogh- 
lan, Max Flgman, Lollta Robertson, etc., 
will begin its second year on Aug. 30, by 
opening Cohan & Harris' new Bronx Thea- 
tre. In addition to the original company of 
stars three other companies have been en- 
gaged to present the play, alone as many 
different routes of one night stands through- 
out the country and Canada, so that every 
community with a theatre-going public will 
have an opportunity to see what Mr. Frazee 
considers his most successful production of 
last season. . .. 

Among the players engaged for the new 
"Fine Feathers" companies are: William 
Macauley, Brandon Evans, Blchard E. Web- 
ster, Mrs. R. E. French, Elizabeth Irving 
and Edna Botliner. for the Eastern com- 
pany; J. J. Ivan, Graydon Fox. W. H. Pen- 
dergnst. Ethel Strickland, flue Stillman, 
Mabel Strickland, David J. Marlowe andMay 
Greville. for the Western company; Willis 
Reed. J. H. Granby, Virginia Hall, Helen 
Hilton, Mercedes Clarke and Grace Bryan, 
for the Southern company. , 

Following the scheduled productions al- 
ready announced for the Longacre Theatre, 
Mr. Frazee has contracted to produce 'The 
Realist," a new play by Eden C. Greville, 
and later in the season will also produce n 
new play by Francos Whltehouse, and a mod- 
ern drama by Catherine Chisbolm CusMng, 
the author of "Widow *y Proxy," "The Real 
Thing," etc. 


From Philadelphia last week came the an- 
nouncement that the Loew-Nlxon-Nirdllnger 
syndicate had come to a parting of the ways. 

Marcus Loew, by the split-up. Is to retain 
control of the Metropolitan Opern House, 
while Fred. G. Nlxon-Nlrdllnger Is to devote 
his individual efforts to the big Grand Opera 
House, at Broad Street and Montgomery Ave- 
nue, now undergoing a complete reconstruc- 
tion. . • . . 

What disposition will be made of the other 
interests of the firm lias not yet been an- 
nounced. These consist of the big theatre in 
the course of construction at Gormantown 
and Maplcwood Avenues, and the Chestnut 
Street Opera House, which was to have been 
opened next Fall as a vaudeville house in 
opposition to B. F. Keith. 

Estimates have been taken for a recon- 
struction, to cost $75,000. to this latter 
house, but It is now said that the owners 
will withhold the awarding of the contract 
until it has been absolutely determined who 
the lessees will be. 



Prof. L. W. Titus, a blind singer of St. 
John, N. B., Can., died July24, after an 
illness of several months. The body was 
taken to Dnxbury. Mass for burial. Mr. Tltiis 
had sung in several church choirs In too 
Canadian city and also several motion pic- 
ture houses. 


Lama Hamilton, who plays the part of 
Buster Collier, in 'The Passing Show or 
1U13." at the Winter Garden, and later docs 
an impersonation of Elsie Janls as 'Cinder- 
ella," has been placed nnder n five year cop- 
tract by Messrs. Shubert She will remain 
with "The Passing Show" however, during 
the life of it* run. 


That Delavan Howland made a very wise 
suggestion to Manager Otis, of the Lyric 
Theatre, In Hackensnck, N. J., when be ad- 
vised putting on a couple of acts of vaude- 
ville lu addition to the moving picture at- 

Manager Otis was not Blow In considering 
the move, and ever since the new policy of 
two acts besides the pictures was Inaugu- 
rated three weeks ago, the house has done a 
really wonderful bnslness, and scores of let- 
ters are being received at the theatre dally 
from recognized ns well as amateur per- 
formers requesting dates to show their new 


"Some banquet" was the verdict heard 
after the family spread given by Tom Marks 
at his Summer cottage, "Erin go Braw," 
Christies Lake, on Saturday, July 26. It 
was a family reunion of the famous Marks 
Brothers, with an extract of theatrical folks 
to give It flavoring. All the brothers with 
the exception of Joe Marks were at the ban- 
quet. Joe in still on the road gathering In 
the "shekels" with his big Summer attrac- 
tion. It was one gala day for the Marks 
Brothers and their relatives and friends. A 
more delightful day, a more picturesque spot 
or a more sumptuous repast could not have 
been asked for, and the event will not be 
forgotten for many a day by those present. 
The party broke up about midnight, and they 
all wore "the smile that won't come off." 

Among the family party were : Mrs. Marks, 
the mother of the Marks Brothers; It. W. 
Marks, his wife. Mey A. Bell Marks, and 
family ; 'Emlc Marks, his wife, Kitty, and 
family ; Alex. Marks, George Marks and Mr. 
and Mrs. Mac Marks. The 'host was Tom 
Marks, and the hostesses, Mrs. .Tom Marks 
and daughter, Arlle. Among the theatrical 
guests were : Mr. and Mrs. Mathews, Mr. 
and Mrs. W. L. rhilllps, Chris Allen, Mr. 
and Mrs. II. Webb Chamberlain, Mr. Helbcrt 
and A. R. A. Barrett.

Among the passengers who arrived In New 
York on board the Kronprinzesuin Cccile, of 
the North German Lloyd Line, July 20, was 
Harry Houdlni, "the handcuff king." Mr. 
Houdinl was In Stockholm, Swceden, when 
he received word of the death of Wb mother, 
Mrs. Ceclle Weiss, which occurred July 10, 
at her home In this city. The funeral took

General Manager E. F. Albee announces 
that B. F. Keith's Colonial, Alhambra and 
Bronx Theatres will open for the season of 
1013-14, on the afternoon of Monday. Sept. 
1. with bills of all Htur Keith vaudeville: 
The Bushwlck will open Its season on Mon- 
day matinee, Aug. 25. The Orpheum's open- 
ing date will be announced Inter. The new 
Prospect Theatre will open lis doors to the

The historic Walnut Street Theatre ban 
been given Into the hands of architects and 
contractors by its new lessees, for the pur- 
pose of making It one of the safest and most 
beautiful playhouaeB In the city. In accord- 
ance with the city's specifications many ox- 
tenslre and noteworthy improvements will 
bo made, chief among them being the con- 
struction of a mammoth tiro tower, wider 
exits, Improved flro escape equipment and 
various other suggested alterations, all of 
which will make for the theatre's safety ns 
well as for the comfort of its patrons. The 
alterations will extend to every part of thu 
building, so that when completed It will pre- 
sent an appearance of nowncss equalled by 
few of the city's playhouses. 

A centrally located, popular priced thea- 
tre presenting traveling attractions hns been 
a long-felt want In Philadelphia, which the 
Walnut Street Theatre promises to fulfill 
the coming season. It will be devoted to tho 
presentation of a splendid line of attrac- 
tions following Its reconstruction, Us re 
decoration and its general rejuvenation. 

Traveling companies playing downtown 
theatres have hitherto been routined to thnso 
whose prices arc above the dollar scale, mil 
with the advent of the Walnut in the Held 
these same attractions, after having played 
at high prices, will return for popular priced 
engagements. In other words, the Walnut's 
policy will be Identical with that of tie 
Grand Opera House, In Now York, acknowl- 
edged to be one of America's most hii hmIiiI 

playhouses. It will be the theatrical bargain 
counter of the city, for not only will popular 
priced attractions be presented, but In addi- 
tion there will be many of the present day 
slellur successes, hitherto unseen In Phila- 
delphia, at low prices. 

Among them will be: "Rough! mid l'nld 
For," "The Man from Home," "The Spend- 
thrift," "Rebecca of .Sunny Brook Farm," 
"The Round-up." "Offlcer (111(1." "A Fnol 
There Was," "Madame X," Chaunccy Oleutl, 
"Mutt and Jeff" and "The Common Law." 

Messrs. Louis It, Mayer and Hen Stem, 
the new lessees, have risen to nn en viable; 
position In theatricals, and their Invasion In 
the local Held promises much far the advance- 
ment of a higher standard of popular priced 
amusement. Tho resident management of 
the house has been entrusted to W. Dnyton 
WcgcfnrLh. one of Philadelphia's most ofll- 
rlent and most popular theatrical inn ringers. 

Although the opening Is yet uncertain, It 

will In nil probability occur on Sent. 1. mid 

the attraction will be one of New fork's well 

known musical successes.

this young lady, who Is on the speed road to 
becoming one of "oar own" future vaudeville

vaudeville end of It as a "single" recently, 
and those danclble limbs of hers, ber good

Louis Kreldler, baritone, was engaged 
some time ago for tbe coming season of 
grand opera at the Century Opera House, 
but did not know It until two days ago. This 
paradoxical situation came about through a 
meeting of Milton Aborn and Gattl-Casnzza, 
In Paris, In June. Kreldler was a popular 
member of the Aborn Opera companies until 
last Fall, when Mr. Casazza drafted blm for 
the Metropolitan Opera Company, with which 
he sang last Winter. The American mana- 
gers were lnronvenlenced at the time by the 
loss of one of their best baritones, and Mil- 
ton Aborn told the Metropolitan director 
that the only way be could make amends for 
his high-handed seizure made last year was 
to let him have Kreldler for the Century 
Opera Company. This was agreed to, and 
the services of the baritone were transferred 
without his knowledge. 

Since tne senior member of tbe firm re- 
turned from Europe, tbe Messrs. Aborn have 
completed n number of other Important en- 
gagements for the Century. These include: 
Carlo Nicosia, who was one of Hammersteln's 
conductors nt the Manhattan nnd Philadel- 
phia Opera Houses ; Mary Jordan, an Ameri- 
can contralto; Francisco Daddi, tenor-buffo, 
who has been with the Chicago-Philadelphia. 
Company, and two other former members of 
Abom Opera Companies: Jayne Herbert, con-, 
tralto, and Morton Adklns, baritone. Mr.. 
Adklus, In addition to bis services In the. 
Century Opera casts, will give Instruction 
In English diction to members of tbe com-

The major In 1807 was on tho road with

venture he stayed at home until 1872 and

Vlcker's Theatre for the run of "A Midsum- 
mer Night's Dream." In 1800 he was with 
Haverly's Minstrels again. In 1892 he went 
to the Coast with Goodyear, Elltch & Shil- 
ling's Minstrels, and the following season he 
was In Chicago with Sam T. Jack. In 1804

Mrs. Elizabeth Ann Dransfteld died last 
week after an Illness of eight months, at ber 
home in Clay City, III. Mrs. Dranslleld was 
greatly beloved both in nnd out of tbe pro- 
fession for her many good works nnd char- 
ities. Every theatrical company playing in 
Clay City was entertained by the Drana- 
flelrts. nnd words cannot describe the bereave- 
ment felt In that city, which universally 
mourns her loss. 

Mrs. Dransfleld was a sister of Mrs. J. 8. 
Gnrslde, wife of James S. Garslde, manager 
nnd owner of the Garslde Stock Company. 
Mrs. Garslde was prostrated by her loss, and 
.'.He attended the funeral, which was held in 
Clay City. The company Inld off four days 
in respect. 



E. F. Albee, general manager of tbe United 
Booking Offices, and Martin Beck, managing 
director of the Orpheum circuit, formally 
announce that their respective vaudeville or- 
ganizations will have no farther business 
relations with H. B. Marlnelll, the Inter- 
national booking agent. This means that 
Marlnelll can no longer book acts in the "big 
time" or first class vaudeville theatres of 
America, as every house of major importance 
Is included in the United and Orpheum 
groups. In explanation of this radical action 
the official statement Issued by Messrs. Beck 
and Albee says : 

"It has been the object of Mr. Marlnelll 
for the past few years to control everv thea- 
tre throughout tbe United States and Europe, 
and wherever he found a manager that 
was Independent enough to do his booking 
in his own way and with whomever he 
pleased — that Is to say, UBlng the different 
agents throughout the United States and 
Europe who nave energetically created and 
controlled a large number of acts — be im- 
mediately endeavored to disrupt every at- 
tempt to do business except with himself, 
thereby placing the managers la a position 
of doing business with one man, which they 
absolutely refuse to do, and which Martin 
Iteck, representing tbe Orpheum circuit, and 
E. F. Albee, representing the United Booking 
Office, object to. These circuits are so vast 
and so Important, representing, as they do, 
over one hundred high class theatres through- 
out tbe United Stales and one hundred more 
medium price houses, these Arms playing 
every character of act known to vaudeville, 
they object to Marinelll's arbitrary manner 
and will not tolerate his dictation. 

"One of his pet methods of doing business 
Is to represent that he controls everything 
in Europe and tie United States, and then 
to procure artists' signatures to agreements 
making Marlnelll their sole representative. 

"For the benefit of the artists hereafter, 
Messrs. Beck and Albee announce that they 
can do business with any agent In the United 
States or Europe for their respective Institu- 
tions. This will give the European agents a 
broad field to work In, and they will receive 
encouragement where they have heretofore 
been muzzled and controlled to a certain ex- 
tent by Mr. Marlnelll."

Kllegl Brothers, proprietors of the Univer- 
sal Electric Stage Lighting Company, of New 
York City, have Just Issued their latest cata- 
logue on electric stage lighting. It is a book of 
eighty pages, excellently printed In large 
type, and everything electrical used back 
stage and. In fact, In any part of a theatre, 
Is profusely Illustrated and described. Tho 
book is also tbe price list of the firm. One 
of the most Interesting features of the cata- 
logue Is the list of telegraph code words which 
the firm uses to enable out of town pro- 
ducers and managers to order goods and 
also give shipping directions. This method 
reduces telegraphic expenses nnd there is 
not the slightest chance of making a mistake. 
This table will be found on page 70. 

For almost twenty years Kllegl Brothers 
have been the undisputed leaders in the 
manufacturing of electric stage effects, and 
many a manager owes much of tbe success of 
his productions to the two wizards of stage 
lighting who compose the firm. Among the 
attractions that they have fitted out with 
electrical effects are: "The Garden of Allah," 
"Creation," "The Galveston Flood," "Fall of 
Pompeii," "The Johnstown Flood," "The

Next Sunday we have a short run, eleven 
miles, over to St. Paul, where we play around 
the State Capitol BulMIng next week. Guess tbo 
most of them will trolley over, but Steve Woods 
will probably hitch a team to the privilege car, 
aa the other way would get It over too quick. 

Red Onion was waiting for us when we came

WATBBBuar, Conn., Aug. 20. 
Johnny J. Jones bbows, a first clsss carnival 
organisation, played this town week of July 31- 
26, under the auspices of the local lodge uf the 
Loyal Order of Moose, to tho biggest of business. 
Same was proven by the gladsome smile of 
Johnny J. himself, who displayed It to your 
Oliitkb correspondent on various occaalona dur- 
ing the entire week. 

The people of Waterbury certainly got the kind 
of entertainment they like, namely, good, clean 
shows, and tho enormous crowds that visited the 
show left with a aelf-satlsfleil feeling that they 
got all they wanted, and then soroe more, in the 
llDe of outdoor entertainment. 

This show Is an all year 'round company, play- 
ing week stands wherever they go. Johnny 
Jones' Rhowa have been on the road for srveral 
years, consecutively, without s lay-off. The 
ahows are transported on thirty-two sixty foot 
can, .all handsomely and uniformly painted. 
The show leaves July 27, lor Mt. Vernon, N. V.

En Route to Minneapolis, 

Oar regular Saturday night storm arrived last 
night about 10 p. at., and cleaned the midway. 
The lot was red clay and pretty tough hauling, 
but ever j thing was loaded in good time for an 
early start. Our lot thla week, while email, was 
located well. Just off tbe main street, and business 
wss very satisfactory, fair crowds every afternoon 
and big at night. The midway was deserted oa 
Thursday, as B. ft B. Circus was across the river 
and a big picnic on our side, but we had an 
average night crowd. B. ft B. was delayed oa 
account of a wreck and had to pass up the parade, 
but they did a big business at both performances. 
A number of the carnival people vlalted them. 

Next week we play Minneapolis, with St. Paul 
to follow, both on tbe streets. We anticipate 
a good business at both places, ss the Bible tells 
us that St Paul la good, and Con Kennedy got 
the money at Minneapolis, so we have no reason 
to doubt either one or them. 

In my notes last week 1 reported the loss, by 
robbery, of a. large sum of money , taken from 
our chief electrician, supposed to have been taken 
by an employee that was rooming with Mr. 
Spencer that night. Spencer had left a descrip- 
tion ot the man with the officers at Dulnth, and 
upon onr arrival at Superior, he waa Informed 
that the man was under arrest and being held at 
Duluth ; his trial came op on Wednesday, and he 
waa held over to the Grand Jury. A large part 
of the money was found oa his person, together 
with a new watch and several other articles that 
bad been recently purchased. The case against 
him Is pretty strong. 

We made the run from Crookaton to Superior 
in twelve hours,' two hundred and eighty-six 
miles, and that'a going some for a twenty-seven 
ear train. The papers here have given us a num- 
ber of flattering notices, with no end of praise 
to O. A. Wortham tor tbe clean and buslness-llks 
manner In which the carnival Is conducted. Of 
course, as long as there are carnivals, there will 
be some undesirable characters, but 0. A. pays 
partlculsr attention to tho weeding,, out process, 
and keeps It pretty well cleaned up sit tbe time. 

Oapt. Cardona has succeeded Billy Dyer In the 
management ot the Animal Show, and It la now 
op among the top money getters.

Mmxrurous, Minn., July SI. 
After a day of intense heat and a burning sun 
a hard wind and rain storm struck tho city about 
midnight snd played bavoc with tbe midway. The 
Wortham ft Allen Shows are playing In an en- 
closure thla week, and tho front entrance Is built 
of massive arches snd pillars. Tbe cyclonic wind 
started with the front, lifting them from thrlr 
foundation and scattering them along tbe street. 
Tbe wsgon fronts were all braced up and with- 
stood the storm, but nearly every tent was nmo* 
or less damaged. Tbe concession tent* were 
turned over, stood on end anil ripped, strings ot 
electric light globes were demolished, and the 
total damage will foot up considerable. Probably 
the heaviest damage was done to the Bockskin 
Ben Wild West Shows, the canopy front and cook 
house went down, seversl poles were broken ami 
the marquet torn, but tho workmen started In 
early and will hare things ready In time for 
the afternoon shows. There waa very little left 
of the cook bouse except tbe ropes, bat as it 
happened, Ben ordered a new cook house from th,) 
J, C. Goes Co., which will be In to-day. Con- 
siderable damage was done In ihe downtown part 
of the city with the wind and lightning. This 
company has been In a number of storms this 
season, but this is tgs first one that has done 
any speclsl daroaue. ' Everything; Is being re- 
paired and straightened out, and by night all 
traces of the wreckage will be gone.

(0L8 MCCUNB, Man.) 
A prcRrnm of unusual excellence Is being 
presented hero this week, and was viewed 
by the largest audience that has attended 
tufB thentre diirlnr; the Summer. 

Bud Fisher, with an entirely new reper- 
toire of pictures, made his usual good Im- 
Tresslon. He works from the orchestra pit 
now and uses a calcium light to throw 
bis drawings on a screen on the stage. 

Beautiful and fascinating Belle Adair, 
with a budget of English and American 
songs, combined with her captivating per- 
sonality, was one of the hits of the bill. 
This young lady opens with an English song 
that was well liked by the audience, and fol- 
lows with another of the same order. Sho 
really doesn't begin to make her hit with the 
_-_._ ,,_. ,, _ — crowd until she rendered "Peg of My Heart." 

PROCTOR S TWERTY-THIRD ST. At lt8 conclusion "^ wan rewarded with 
IftWrtvaw aestwwai »«u*w v.. anny encorea . For a finish she gare a reci- 
tation song and again proved her originality. 
Cone Fsyton, assisted by Mlna Phillips 
and company, were seen for the first time 
with a vew skit, entitled "The Wife Tamer."

Having a recognised headllner here for 
the entire week of July 28. In Walter U 
Wale and his company, satisfied the patrons 
of (tils house after seeing Mr. Wale's presen- 
tation of "At the Tbrcshhold" the first half 
that they wished very much to see "His Big 
Brother put on for the latter four days of 
the week. Mr. Wale (as we found him here) 
is undoubtedly one of the real artiste on the 
vaudeville stage to-day. His characterisa- 
tion of the burglar who .made a "man of 
promise" see the wrong In himself by forcing 
Ills attentions upon "an old man's darling 
wife, in "At the Tliresbhold," suffers not one 
whit by comparison to this same actor's per- 
formanse of "the big brother," who refuses 
to allow bis romantic brother to uarry a 
woman whom he himself believes to be an 
Illegitimate offspring of his own. until a let- 
ter came explaining that he was mistaken. 
And big Jim gave them his Messing, while 
pot a few peepers out front were squealing 
out a few "salty ones." ._„.__ . , 

To return to the first naif ot the week's 

Bob Stone, black face comedian, did very 

welt with his good delivery ot a bright line 
of fun chatter and sang his numbers to 
like results. . 

The Menards, band to band and head to 
head balancers, as well as the boy (In female 
garb) •doing a clever bit atop of a pole 
balanced by the woman, were the main thrill- 
ers of the evening. 

Dertlno and his dogs Is a clever canine 
act The best work Is done while Mr. Bar- 
tins balances himself on a slack wire, the 
dogs going tbrougti a course of stunts that 
were thoroughly appreciated by the audience. 

Ifrber and Wnitcliff, William Edmonds and 
company, In "Help wanted," and Rose Lee. 
singing comedienne, are all reviewed under 
New Acts. In this Issue. 

Besides the change of act presented by 
Walter Wale and company, for the new bill 
on Thursday. 31, Hayes and Wynne, a sing- 
ing and rapid fire dancing couple, copped the 
next big piece ot applause, along with Ward 
and Delmar. The scrap was a draw. 

Hayes and Wynne opened with a song, to 
work Into the feature of their being salary 
collectors. Mile-a-minutc wooden shoeing is 
their main specialty, and besides being 
worthy of that speed stuff each possesses 
o stage personality that is seldom found in 
such acts. 

Ward and Delmar, one working « tough 
guy expressman and the other straight, tee 
latter first In gray suit and straw hat. and 
then to evening dress, present one of the 
funniest slang, comedy and singing acts that 
has struck this particular neighborhood in 
many weeks. The express gink with the 
granulated eye handles that character very 
well and, although neither claim being great 
singers, they warble well enough to keep up 
with the rest of their material and to con- 
tinue tearing open Proctor pay envelopes 
twice a week tor future dates. 

Art Adair followed soon after the rube 
character U the "Fan In the Woods" act 
of Florence Horst and company, but besides 
presenting a real tunny different rural char- 
acter, Adair gets a proper share of comedy 
out of one or t>wo of the musical Instruments 
he plays on, first on a peculiar looking article 
that turned! out to be a snare drum, then a 
clarinet, and finished with a cornet, playing 
lt head to lead anon a dummy figure. They 
liked Art, but not quite as much as he de- 
served for his hit. probably because there 
was a rube ahead of him on the bill. 

Dunbar's goats are worthy of a few words 
of praise for what they do accomplish. 
There's nothing sensational about the ani- 
mals* stunts, but they do enough to get by, 
and with fresh, paraphernalia the act would 
behold a better appearance. 

Billed as Sully and Laursen, these tum- 
blers offered their funny acrobatic act to a 
bunch of good laughs, and nothing was miss- 
ing in the applause for their attempts to pull 
new springs and twists. 

Florence Horst and her company of two 
males presented "Fun In the woods" to a 
rainy finish that drew a big hand. (See New 
Acts.) Tod. 



Ward and West, two young women, opened 
the bill at this house the first half of this 
week. They offer a straight singing turn, 
but both of the girls work very stiff. Their 
singing of "Honeymoon .Express" Is the only 
number that they showed any life. They got 
by nicely. 

Charles De- Land and company, a three 
people sketch, did very well. 

Ed. Keeley takes credit for discovering 
Enrico, an Italian singer and violinist. With 
a little more self-reliance folks wilt bear 
more of this clever act. He "cleaned up" on 
this bUI. 

"A Day In Court," a tabloid musical com- 
edy, with eleven people, did some good work. 
The Irish judge did very well, and is de- 
serving ot special mention. 

Fletcher, Ltbby and McCabe, two men and 
a woman, do a very good talking and sing- 
ing act, and certainly pleased all present. 

JtoneB and Brown, man and woman. In a 
high class singing, pleased immensely. 


Canine fW. L, Rowland, 'mgr.) —"The 
Purple Bead" closed its engagement here 
Saturday evening, Aug. 2. _ . 

Longaox-e (H. u, Frasce, mgr.) — This 
house wilt re-open Monday evening, Aug. 11, 
with "The Silver Weddine," a new comedy, 
with Thomas A. Wise In the lead.

—On Monday evening, Aug. 11, Richard Ben- 
nett will resume bis engagement at this

Maxine Blllott'a (Geo. J. Appleton, mgr.) 
— "The Oentleman from No. 10, announced 
to be produced at this house Monday evening, 
Aug. 4, was indefinitely postponed. 

Academy ot Mnsie (Robert E. Irwin, 
mgr.)— "The Two Orphans" is the offering 
or the Academy Company this week, Ethel 
Clifton, the new leading woman, played Hen- 
rietta, and Angela McCaull was Louise. John 
J. ■Carroll played Jacques. Next week, "Zlra." 

Million Square Ttoof Garden, — Dan- 
cing In the moonlight Is as popular as ever. 
The cabaret for this week includes: Edith 
'Barton, a ballad singer; Stella Ford, so- 

Srano; Myrtle Roland, character singer;

a coon sttouter from Alabama ; Clark Lincoln. 
American tenor, and others. Monday and

formances after the regular bill.

cle that woulld do credit to a human being. 

Irwin and Herzog, put on the bill at the 
last moment, cave a singing sieckilty that 
earned them tremendous applause. Both ap- 
pear !n evening dress, and make a fine ap- 
pearance. Their voices blend finely together, 
and the Bevcral songs they render stamped 
them finished artists. 

La France and McNabb, black face comics, 
had little cause for complaint at the cordial 
reception given them. They put over a 
line of talk that kept the audience in a roar 
of laughter each minute they were on the 

Cole and Denahy, Coast favorites. In the 
latest terpslchorean creations, made their 
first appearance in New York. (See New 

"Three Elds from School," composed of 
two young men and a young girl, was easily 
one ot the cleverest acts of the entire bill. 
All three are excellent dancers and singers, 
and know how to ntlllzo their feet and voices 
to good advantage. 

Casteltne, the funny man on wheels, per- 
formed tricks on the bicycle that had the 
audience gasping for breath. The opening 
position was no handicap for him, as he 
took three bows at the conclusion ot his 
good work. 

The Great Tornadoes, featuring Mabel 
Tornado, presented their sterling acrobatic 
performance, and were big favorites, jack. 


(■. BLOCH. MOl.) 

A good bill entertained Aug. 1. when the 
cool evening brought a good siscd house. 
Karlton and Kllfford, In regulation artists' 

fet-op, painted landscapes and sea-views on 
ranspareactes with good results. 

John Zlmmer, the adept at Juggling things, 
was an added attraction, and held attention 
with marvelous work with four, five and 
six balls, especially In the "bounce" act. 
Hats, cigars, handkerchiefs, etc., all found 
ready handling from the master juggler. 

Mary Keogfa, looking like a little nine 
year old, sang "What's the Use of Being 
Good," la regular kid style, also "I Didn't 
Miss Anything," and told a number ot juve- 
nile comics with good effect. 

Frank Brothers opened in fancy plantation 
suits with a dance full of lively steps and 
original movements. A grotesque number 
had many quaint manoeuvres, and their 
straight clog finish earned them several en- 
cores and bows, and they left, well liked. 

The Three Emersons, In acrobatics, with a 
Turkish, bath setting, performed their won- 
derful leaps, head, hand and foot balances to 
the head by springboard and the leaping 
board way. The comedian made good in 
comedy as well as In acrobatics. Xbe strength 
and skill of the trio are exceptional. 

Then came Murray Bennett, walking on 
unconcernedly In street dress. Before he was 
on a minute he was well liked, and during 
his second song and with his stories he made 
himself a riot. "Where Did i'ou Get That 
Glrlr" was well sung and acted. "When 
Ylddle with fits Fiddle Leads the Cabaret" 
was thoroughly characteristic. Then the 
jokes, one better than the other, and finally 
"Pick, Pick on Your Mandolin" to a great 

Budd and Clare's was a funny comedy mu- 
sical act The Eton boy played the straight, 
and the comedian, with a funny moustache, 
apparently growing from his nostrils, and 
a tailless coat, had more than plenty of com- 
edy hits. The concertina duets, a solo on 
a one-string fiddle, and other musical offer- 
ings were well liked. Their finish, with the 
comedian as a prima donna and dancer, and 
the gent hi full dress, made more laughs. 

Dick Bernard and company presented their 
sketch, 'The Animal Staffer." with Ber- 
nard's well known tactics In German, ming- 
ling his language in pathos and comedy, with 
a cranky rival in business and an at- 
tractive daughter in love with his rival's 
ton, a funny pinochle game and a final recon- 
ciliation, it proved to be well worth while. 

The pictures were an Interesting assort- 
ment. UilL 


(E. F. BOGEU3, uaii.) 

New acts are again well to the fore here, 
this week's program having no less than five, 
with one of the new acta in the position ot 
the bill's headllner. 

(Seymour Brown, the well known composer 
of popular songs. Is the favored one. and, 
at the head of his own company of eighteen, 
presented on. Monday a musical offering ot 
his own composition, entitled "The Bachelor 
Dinner." See New Acts. 

Walter C, Percival and company also hold 
an important program position in a new dra- 
matic playlet, entitled "The Choice." See 
New Acts* 

Other acts on this week's bill which are 
new here are : Hermann and Shirley, in "The 
Mysterious Masquerader ;" the Aatalres, 
singers and dancers, and Jack -Mooncy, bari- 
tone vocalist, all of which receive further 
mention in this week's New Acts columns. 

Mlddleton and Spellmeyer, In their Inter- 
esting and finely played sketch, "An Ocean 
Wooing," need no Introduction In tbls article, 
as they have been long end favorably known 
In vaudeville. 

This also well describes the act of the 
Florenz Family of acrobats, whose expert 
and graceful work has never been excelled 
on the American stage. 

Maud Mullcr and Ed. Stanley, In lively 

I miter and the splendid singing by Miss Mill- 
er, were easily one of the bills best fea- 
tures, and they sent their excellent material 
across In a most entertaining manner. Miss 
M tiller Is also one of Am erica 'a most talented 

Lhtnett and Wilson opened the show In a 
bar tct of good calibre. Ofif Timer.

This large and beautiful theatre, with its 
comfortable seats, re-opened on Monday even- 
ing with stock. You may not believe it, but 
you have lt on the word of the writer that 
the great auditorium was crowded, and 
bear in mind that the Manhattan Opera 
House Is one of the largest theatres in the 
country. To fill It at this time of the year 
la indeed marvelous, and Manager Frank 0. 
Miller may pat himself on the back. 

Charles Klein's drama of police condi- 
tions, "The Third Degree," was the open- 
ing bill, and a splendid all around perform- 
ance was given of the piece by the excellent 
company. Joseph Bryoa Totten, the young 
but capable stage director, played the role 
of Howard Jeffries Jr. In a convincing man- 
ner. The stage management and production 
left nothing to be desired. 

Ethel Grey Terry, as Mrs. Howard Jeffries 
Jr., scored heavily. She Is a clever actress, 
who throws her heart and soul into every- 
thing she does. It was no surprise to learn 
that she has built up a strong personal fol- 

Pauline Neff, a tall, statuesque beauty. 
was entrusted with the role of Mrs. Howard 
Jeffries Sr., and gave a satisfactory per- 
formance. Miss Neff is a woman of "classy" 
appearance and gives evidence ot being an 
actress of ability. 

A dignified and impressive performance of 
the role of Richard Brewster was given by 
Bernard J. MeOwen, an actor of distinction. 

William Riley Hatch, who long ago won 
his spurs as a character actor, was capital 
as the hard-hearted police captain. 

Raymond Wells, as the father, rather 
marred his performance by being too stagy. 

The other roles were played by Carl Ge- 
rard, Slgmund Fischer, Lee Mettord, L. 
Kufus Hill, Louis Wolford, Dennis Macklo 
and Frank Brady, 

After the third act iMr. Totten came before 
the curtain and made a witty speech about 
his recent European trip. 

The underline for week of Aug. 11 is "The 
Country Boy." ATclcey. 




'Evelyn Nesblt made her American vaude- 
ville debut at this bouse Monday afternoon, 
Aug. 4, and scored a real hit it was her 
first New York appearance since she ap- 
peared in "The Wild Rose," at the Knicker- 
bocker Theatre, this city. and. while many 
In the audience that packed the theatre to 
Its capacity were attracted by Idle curiosity, 
Miss Nesblt (as she prefers to be called) 
showed that she possessed ability sufficient 
to warrant her holding a prominent place on 
the vaudeville stage. 

She was assisted by Jack Clifford, and 
together they presented one of the cleverest 
dancing acts the local stage has seen for 
some time. Miss Nesblt is agile and grace- 
ful, and also proved that she is quite adept 
et acrobatics. Those who expected to see a 
stage "freak" were agreeably disappointed, 
and while her ability alone might not make 
her a sensation, the act presented hy herself 
and partner, will compare favorably with 
the best of d!an:lng acts.

Davis, singers nnd dancers; Lawton, comedy 
Juggler; Wilbur Sweatman, clarinet virtu- 
oso ; Three Ambler Brothers, equilibrists ;

Tbe Warner's Feature Film Co. baa closed 
the . arrangements necessary to fulfill Its 
j.lans Tor tbe distribution of a superior and 
complete feature program, through Its 
twenty-four established exchanges, compris- 
ing its American and European representa- 
tion. To increase Its exchange operations and 
to adequately handle the program which it 
will provide in September, Messrs. Warner 
have sneceeded In Interesting P. A. Powers 
to bead ibclr company as president. 

In the new organization A. Warner will 
be vice president and general manager : H. M. 
Warner, treasurer; «. M. Goetz, assistant 
treasurer, and J. A. McKlnney, secretary. 

The new Warner's Features, Incorporated, 
la the bolntlon of tbe problem up to now 
confronting producers. Many manufacturers 
have undertaken and others In numbers have 
been willing to undertake the making of pic- 
tures of the greatest proportions and value, 
but, owing to tbe present combinations, could 
not rcacb the exhibitors with their output. 

The exhibitors, on tbe other hand, have 
been confined In their efforts to increase their 
business by the stronghold In which manu- 
facturers who have had exchange Interests 
have entrenched themselves and followed 
their own disposition as regards the quantity 
and quality of film they prepared. This 
company's operations open a new epoch in 
tbe motion picture field. Exhibitors will 
linxe the nssurance from now on that the 
American and European manufacturers will 
vie with each other in their efforts to meet 
the growing and exacting demands of tbe 
patrons of moving picture playhouses for 
productions of excellence and originality. 
No motion picture plays of extraordinary 
quality will be shelved by reason of there 
not being an opportunity for spectators to 
place the stamp of their approval thereon, 
and secure for the manufacturer the returns 
be deserves for his initiative and ability in 
producing the film on which the growth of 
the patronage of the business depends. 

The feature productions already controlled 
by the Warner Company will be augmented 
by the output of several manufacturers of 
superior film. The combination of Mr. 
Powers' Influence lu increasing the capitali- 
sation of the company for its greater opera- 
tions and In making satisfactory purchasing 
agreements, gives the Warner's Feature Film 
Company tbe distinction of becoming one of 
the most important and successful distribu- 
ting factors in the moving picture business. 

A number of manufacturers have been 
anxiously awaiting the opportunity of secur- 
ing this outlet, and with their co-operation 
the program handled by tbe Warner's ex- 
changes in September will equal any source 
of supply tbat exhibitors have available, and 
give to manufacturers the opportunity tbey 
nave sought of successful disposition of tie 
best productions tbey can make. 

The company will perfect its re-organizs- 
tlon and direct Its operations from its bead- 
quarters in the Candler Building. 



Oeorge Klelne's photo-drama marvel, "Quo 
Vadls?" continues to break records for big 
business all over the United States. Last 
week at Keith's Hippodrome, in Cleveland, 
0., the average dally attendance Including 
one matinee and evening performance only, 
was over four thousand people. When It is 
considered tbat this occurred in midsummer, 
it becomes a phenomenal record. It has 
never been approached by any other indoor 
entertainment. The gross receipts for tbe 
week exceeded the average of the usual two 
dollar musical attraction, yet the prices were 
only twenty-live and fifty cents, with box 
scats at seventy-five cents. 

Monday, Aug. 4, four new companies open 
(he regular season presenting George Klelne's 
photo-drama success, "Quo Vadls?" One at 
the Columbia, San Francisco, Cal., which 
will tour the Pacific Coast and Southwest, 
and Is in charge of Albert Hoogs and John 
Brehany ; another at Des Moines, la., which 
proceeds to Omaha, Denver, Salt Lake City, 
and a comprehensive tour of the Northwest 
and Canada, in charge of Charles Wuerx and 
Ed. Msnley ; a third begins at the Nlxnn's 
Theatre, Pittsburgh, Pa., and is booked all 
ever New York, Pennsylvania and the Middle 
States, in charge of John niack and Arch 
McGovern. The fourth opens at the Park 
Theatre, Bridgeport, Conn., and will tour 
New England and the Eastern States, In 
charge of Sam Mott and Ed. Lester. In 
addition to these there are four more travel- 
ing companies covering different parts of the 
country, and permanent companies in New 
York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Cleve- 
land, Brooklyn, Paterson and several other 



has been formed by Amos M. Hnber, Llndsav 
D. Holmes and L. A. Thompson, of 291 
Broadway, New York. 

The week Just passed In film circles has 
been fraught with highly interesting de- 
velopments, mostly of a constructive char- 
acter. True, there has been little or no war- 
fare (that is, of an individual nature), but 
as it is always admittedly better to build up 
rather tban tear down, the absence of war 
bulletins and sharp-shooting tactics among 
tbe manufacturers' and exhibitors' various 
factions is hereby gladly recorded. 

One of the chief developments along con- 
structive lines is the announcement of the 
formation of tbe re-organized Warner's Fea- 
tures, a concern which, with P. A. Powers, 
resourceful and aggressive film magnate, in 
tbe executive chair, should become an im- 
portant factor in the rapidly growing list of 
feature distributing companies. 

The Dame of the new corporation will be 
Warner's Features, Inc., and the officers, in 
addition to P. A. Powers, president, are: 
A. Warner, vice president and general mana- 
ger; H. M. Warner, treasurer; H. ML Goetz, 
assistant treasurer, and J. A. McKlnney, 
secretary. Vic Johnson will continue to 
shoot out the weekly newspaper dope, as of 

Geo. Klelne, tbe film impresario, who in- 
troduced "Quo Vadls?" so successfully in 
America, bas a new one, which is said to be 
even superior, in several respects, to the 
famous cinematographic reproduction of the 
religious play. "The Last Days of Pompeii," 
during the action of the spectacle entails the 
destruction of an entire city of many 
thousands of people. 

This phase of the terrible results of old 
Vesuvius' volcanic tendencies will last seven 
minutes, before the camera. The eruption, 
which will be faithfully reproduced by ad- 
vanced scientific and artificial methods, will 
undoubtedly form one of the greatest and 
most breath-boldlDg spectacles seen in a 
modern theatre. 

Through tbe sale by court order of tbe 
effects of the Two Bills' Show at Denver, 
Thursday, July 31, the Universal Film Manu- 
facturing Company came into possession of 
a big addition to its West Coast Zoo. Two 
camels and seven elephants are among the 
beasts acquired. They will be^sent Imme- 
diately to Universal City, near Los Angeles, 
where tbey will be employed in the making 
of a new Biblical picture, which General 
Manager Isidor Bernstein bas in contempla- 


A valuable circus horse was crushed to 
death by a twenty foot python, which escaped 
from its cage one night last week at the 
Universal Coast studios, Hollywood. Cal. 
The horse cost in tbe neighborhood of $1,000. 
Flty the poor actor who can't stop drinking 
after this. Imagine a twenty foot snake.

The Famous Players Film Company, be- 
ginning Sept. 1, will Inaugurate a policy of 
regular releases of three, four or five reel 
features. These productions will be Issued 
tbree times a month, their length to be de- 
termined by tbe particular requirements ot 
tbe subjects. This monthly program will be 
as pretentious and Influential as the former 
releases of tbts company, and will conform 
entirely with the high standard established 
and maintained by the Famous Players Film 

This extended policy was formulated as a 
direct effect of tbe unanimous demand for 
more frequent and regular releases of this 
company's product, and is virtually an ac- 
knowledgment of the wide and general en- 
dorsement of their activities; and a favor- 
able acquiescence to the repeated requests of 
exhibitors and State right buyers through- 
out tbe country. 

'Among the first few productions to be re- 
leased under this new plan are Mrs. FIske, 
in her famous success, Thomas Hardy's pa- 
thetic story Teas of the D'Urbervilles," 
tbe film production of which bas already at- 
tracted such wide attention In the dally 
newspapers throughout tbe country ; Mary 
Plckford, In tbe favorite novel nnd play, "In 
the Bishop's Carriage;" Henry E. Dlxey, In 
"Chelsea 7760;" Litlle Langtry, In a tense 
dramatic play, "His Nelghbr's Wife," de- 
scribed as a powerful sermon in film, and 
Laura Sawyer, in "An Hour Before Dawn," 
a female detective play, 


Alfred H. Saunders (ex-cathedra) re- 
signed Saturday. Aug. 2, from the post of 
editor of The Moving PMure Nctcs. Mr. 
Saunders has been In the film game for 
twenty years, more or less, and was editor 
of the motion picture Journal for six vears. 
He will devote himself In future to the field 
of educational pictures for schools, colleges, 
etc. As Alfred; H. has always been strong 
for the high-brow thing, he should meet with 
success in his chosen atmosphere. Here's 
our best wishes I 


H. D. Stryckmans, editor of The Mutual 
ObMrver, house organ of the Mutual camp, 
will leave the service of the Mutual Corpora- 
tion nbout Sept. 1. when he will engage lu

handling Imported feature films. 


The Exclusive Supply Corporation has ar- 
ranged to become the •North American rep- 
resentatives for all brands of pictures 
handled by tbe following London concerns: 
The Tyler Film Co., Gerard Film Co., Cos- 
mopolitan Film Co., Globe Film Co. and 
American Film Releases. 

The above mentioned English agencies have 
been recently amalgamated into enc company, 
and will handle the weekly feature output 
of fourteen different manufacturing concerns. 

After a process of elimination, three fea- 
tures will be selected by the London office, 
and sent to America. These features will bo 
picked with discrimination as legards their 
suitability for American audiences. Upon 
arrival in New York the throe features will 
be carefully scrutinised, and a final selection 
made. This method Is most assuredly a 
"survival of the attest," in the superlative 

The additional feature will, when released 
by the Exclusive Supply Co., bear the brand 
of Film Releases of America.

The Essanay Film Manufacturing Co.

discontinuance of its regular Friday single 
reel release. In place of the single reel, 
however, there will be a multiple reel attrac-

will be released Aug. 8, and entitled "Alkali

"Doc." Wlllat, co-producer with J. Parker 
Reade, of "Victory," the new naval five-reel 
feature thriller, and also laboratory eipert 
of the New York Motion Picture Co., owns 
one of those low, rakish little cars, known 
to fame as a "Bulck." There are some who 
assert solemnly that the genial "Doc's" 
"Road Rabbit" has no greater speed possi- 
bilities than a turtle, but "they" have been 
proven to be all wrong for once, and entirely 
off In their estimation of transportation 
vehicles. Worthy Butts, cheerful distributor 
of "movie" posters, was kidding "Doc." Sat- 
urday afternoon, about the speed qualities of 
n foresaid Bulck, with the result that "Doc." 
decided to settle, for all time, Any doubts la 
that direction. _ _ . _ , 

Accordingly "Doc," Willat and Bert Ennls, 
publicity promoter of the New York Motion 
Picture Co., accompanied by a newspaper 
maD, who Is said to be a close relative of 
the publicity promoting youth, started from 
Times Square Saturday, at 8 r. M., with 
the avowed intention of reaching Prospect 
Park, Brooklyn, In thirty minutes I ■ 

Now, Prospect Park b a good ten mile 
run from Times Square, and the first lap 
of the journey, made, miraculously without 
mishap, through the crowded downtown sec- 
tion of New York City to the .Brooklyn 
Bridge In fifteen minutes, can stand as an 
official record all by Itself. Arriving la 
Brooklyn "Doc." decided lo let 'er out for 
fair, and rubber ilants. baby carriages and 
other familiar Bi^oklyn products were passed 
like a streak of lightning. The little "Bulck" 
all the time holding up like a racer. Pros- 
pect Park was reached within the specified 
time limit, and, In fact, according to a re- 
liable timepiece, in twenty-eight minutes, 
which was two to the good. 

Just at tbe entrance of tbe park, however, 
an event occurred which, sad to relate, 
slightly dampened the elation of the en- 
thusiastic autolsts. A gendarme with a nice 
little ticket was in waiting, and he spake 
thusly : "You guys have been hitting it up 
like an express train for the past twenty 
blocks, you didn't slow up at two separate 
and distinct trolley car crossings, and In 
parting I am sorry, but I can't listen to any 
explanations. You will have to tell it to the 
judge Monday at 10 a. m." Only be didn't 
use those exact words. What "Doc Bald can't 
he printed. What worthy Butts *ald was: 
"I lose, whafll It be?" The publicity pro- 
moter and the newspaper man refused to 
speak for publication. 


The Vltagraph Co. has some open air 
studio, occupying a stockade enclosure cover- 
ing nn area of ICO by 450 feet. Tbe stage 
is 100 feet deep by 150 feet in width, which 
can be enclosed whenever necessary. TblM 
studio Is set apart and the stage built for 
the large productions which it Is rapidly 
making preparation to enact la the near fu- 
ture. The new buildlog being added to the 
already large plant, is nearly completed. It 
provides a new glass-covered studio 400 by 
J 00 feet. So rapidly has the business grown 
these additions were '.mperatlve, and it 1* 
now hoped that they will meet tbe immediate 
needs of tbe company.

ether week a railing of the Mutual booth

After her "ward of the King" adventure, 
Visa La Badie rested up at home for a few 
days and nursed her face, but It must be 
recorded to her credit that before taking the 
rest she plucklly "finished" 1»i»r scenes In the 

Jilctnre. It was a two reel affair, and 
ortunately for Director Moore, had 'but s 
few more scenes to "go" at the time Miss La 
Badle's horse reared. 

Eugene Moore, who served many seasons 
with the famous Tbanhouser Stock Company 
in Milwaukee, and then appeared In ■ the 
Tbanhouser films up to the day of his ap- 
pointment as a director with that producer, 
will be seen in the New Bocbelle films again 
— once. The single re-appearance bears the 
title of "The Spartan Father." The "lead" 
In the story was of the type that Mr. Moore 
tised to ably portray when a Than* 
kouser actor, and so Lloyd Lonergan, who 
wrote the plot, persuaded Moore to play the 
part as well as direct it. As a Thanhouser 

?>lcture player Moore will be best remembered 
or his work In "The Politician," "The Pa- 
triot," "A Mystery of Wall Street," "Good- 
Morning, Judge," "For Another's) Sin" and 
"The Boomerang." Frank Grimmer, another 
ex-Thanhouser actor, is Director Moore's 
chief assistant at the New Bocbelle studio. 

It .is said the General Film Co. Is contem- 
plating the Issuance of a weekly magazine 
devoted to the Interests of Its film releases. 

The Sellg Co. win make ita Initial multi- 
ple reel Monday release Aug. 11. It will be

A rather thrilling but amusing experience 
befell two members of the Bssanay Eastern 
Stock Co., In Chicago, a few days ago. 
They had been taking the parts of tramps 
in a photoplay being produced at Lake Bluff, 
a small suburb, end to save themselves the 
trouble of changing and going to their homes 
only to return early the next morning to 
complete the scene, they decided to spend 
the nlgbt in a bathhouse. Charlie Hitchcock, 
an actor, with the same company, lives at 
Lake Bluff, and strolling on the beach In 
early morning with bis pet collie dog, "Don," 
who hoi a pronounced antipathy for tramps, 
he had great difficulty In preventing "Don' 
from making a breakfast of two scared actors 
before lie recognized thorn. 

Florence Roberts, who, for years, presented 
"Sapbo" in all sections of tho country, bas 
been persuaded to do It before the moving 
picture camera, so that posterity might know 
what Miss Roberts considered high art. New 
Majestic did the persuading. With the star, 
at number of other "legitimate" favorites 
have been signed for the film production, not 
the least among them being Shelly Hall, well 
known to Broadway. All the recently added 
stages at the Majestic Los Angeles studios 
have been pressed into service for the 
"Bapho"-Roberta production, resulting in 
"sets" of greater dimensions than any tho 
Majestic directors have so far shown. Spe- 
cial scenic and property departments were 
organized for the feature. It Is said that 
Miss Roberta la to collect a royalty on tho 
tale of the film, expressing a preference for 
this mode of payment as against a lump sum 
for her work and the use of her name. Tho 
number of reels that will be released hasn't 
been settled yet. but around five reels is the 
studio guess. The production cost will run 
well into tho thousands, ta reports go.

"A Knife of Fire' is the title of a new 
Edison film, showing bow steel Is cut and 
welded to-day. This remarkably instructive 
film illustrates the use of the "oxygrapb," 
an apparatus operated by acetylene gas and 
oxygen. The Jet of flame thus generated Is 
6,300 degrees Fahrenheit, and is shown weld- 
ing together two pieces of sheet steel in a 
miraculous manner. The oxygraph Is also 
shown cutting out fancy figures from half- 
inch sheet steel as one would cut cardboard 
with a sharp knife blade, then a piece of 
armor plate, sixteen inches square, is cut 
through by this little Jet of flame in four

The first section, "Porcelain," shows how 
some of the finest of the world's porcelain 
Is manufactured In the celebrated porcelain 
works of Limoges, France. This Is followed 
by a "travel" film, taking us for a delight- 
ful trip "On the Roads of uiupnlnc, France." 
The fine hand coloring of this section adds 
materially to Its already remarkable beauty. 
"The Exercise of the Twenty-third French

entertaining film, shows us the athletic drill 
of one of 'France's crack military regiments.

Closely following the defeat of the Moros 
by the U. S. troops under General Pershing, 
in the Philippine Islands, comes a Sellg film 
entitled "In Moroland." The life and habits 
of this highly interesting tribe of blood- 
thirsty Islanders is depicted in great detail. 
No tribe In the whole Philippine Archipelago 
has given Uncle Sam so much trouble or been 
so difficult to pursue. This is partly due to 
their sagacity and partly on account of the 
rugged nature of the mountains which they 
Inhabit. This film will be a welcome one to 
the already remarkable list of educational*

Ir BUMS only a short time since the 
act of Filson and Errol was one of the best 
to conjure with in the realm at vaudeville. 
They began with Tony Pastor and they ended 
up as "topllners" in the bright lights that 
limn the porte cocheri in front of the modern 
vaudeville palaces. They were the first to 
produce George Cohans premier sketch, 
•'The Tip on the Darby," In New York. They 
used to end up their season early in Chicago 
eo that Al. Filson could get back to his farm 
over at old St. Joe, Mich. He also struck 
oil in Oklahoma, which helped him along, 
but while be retired from the stage he felt 
the lure of moving pictures, and some while 
ago stopped orange farming la California to 
join the Sellg Co. Now his wife, Lea Errol.

they will reproduce some of tbelr famous 
vaudeville Bketches together at the big plant

Last week, while tbe Tamalpals Conserva-

ing over tbe terrible destructions of forest 
fires on the Pacific Coast, the people of tho 
Mill River Valley, in BUtbedale, were busy 
fighting the flames back toward tbe top of 
Warner's Ridge and Corte Madre Ridge. A 
group of motion picture operators, accom- 
panied by Lanier Bartlett. Paul Pincus and 
others from the Sellg Polyscope Co., were 
high up on the mountain taking Alms, show- 
ing tbe lire and the fighters. They were sud-

could reach a zone of safety, and were only 
rescued with tbe greatest sort of difficulty. 

Last week,»at Ft. Riley, Kan., Gov. Hodges 
and his entire staff, as well as all the officers 
of tbe post saw a number of moving picture 
(lima that had been made for the Sellg Poly- 
scope Co. by Chaplain Dickson of the United 
states Army. The Kant at Vity Star, whose 
correspondent was present, wrote : "The con- 
sensus of opinion was, that the Alms were 
the finest military pictures that have ever 
been produced. The photography was per- 
fect, and the scenes went on the screen with 
almost the same pleasure to the eye that a 
person would view the scene in nature. • • • 
At times tho camera was bo closo to the can- 
non that every detail of tbe 'recoil of the 
service charge could be seen the same as In 
the field. Into action and out of action, 
through the woods, stringing wire, and 
across ditches rushed the red guidon. Even 
hardened campaigners thrilled as they 
watched — every person shown In these pic- 
tures was an officer or soldier of tho regular 
army. There wns no posing or lovo scene: 
It was a masterly dignified presentation of 
the American soldier as he really Is."

A Charming Kleine-Eclipse Feature 






A splendid story of adventure. The settings are un- 
usually picturesque-laid In the ring of a traveling circus 
where the spectacular "Leap For Life" turns to a "Leap 
To Death." 

In love with the Acrobat's wife, the Clown seeks her In 
tho dressing room and makes violent love. The Acrobat, 
returning from his daring leap, finds them together, and 
Incurs the everlasting enmity of the Clown. 

Plotting a diabolical revenge the Clown awaits his 
chance. It comes when the child of the Acrobat dies 
suddenly. Just as he Is poised for his desperate leap, the 
Clown whispers the news In his ear. With a heart laden 
with grief, dazed by the awful tidings, the Acrobat loses 
his nerve, and by a fatal mis-step plunges to destruction. 

A Two-reel of many sensational moments, combining 
the usual air of the Circus, with Its atmosphere and 
color, and the charms of a delightful story.

Klelne-Ecllp.e Release Calls for Real 

Tn# Eclipse Co., of Paris, deserves credit 
for many odd and unusual thought* in Ulm 
making. Joe HattknaD. known In this coun- 
try under the name of "Arizona Bill," was 
actually torn in Phoenix, and, with his wife, 
fell upon bard times In tbe tig French capi- 
tal. "Bill" applied for work with the 
Eclipse Co. and was given some typical West- 
ern cowpuncher stories to produce. The nov- 
elty of a Western film made In Paris created 
much talk at the time. 

Ik obdm to produco the Klelne-Ecllpse 
release for Tuesday, Aug. 10, a two-reel 
atorjr, an entire stranded circus was hired. 
The tented aggregation in question "went 
broke" in the Parisian suburbs, and tbe 
Eclipse Co., ever after something new, con- 
ceived the idea of resting the circus. This 
they did, using none of their regular leads. 
The result was a splendid two-reel, note- 
worthy for the genuine color and atmosphere 
of a circus. The title Is "Tho Clown's Ite- 
venge," and the central thought swings about 
tiie jealousy of a clown and a diabolical plan 
of vengeance. 

TBaUTBiCAt, and motion picture circles in 
the East have been much Interested in the 
report that George Klelne contcmnlntcH using 
certain famous Broadway stars In his mul- 
tiple-reel importations. This information 
has given rise to erroneous reports of Mr. 
Klelne again entering tbe manufacturing 
business. Mr. Kleino has no Intention of 
erecting studios and releasing pictures In tho 
usual way, but docs arpect to take American 
stage favorites to Prance and Italv to play 
leads In bis big Aim creations. Announce- 
ment of his definite plans will be made In 
tbe near future. 

Fob tbe benefit of the einlbltor, fJcorgo

egutpped bo tho last detail, to meet the needs

[Mnrard Itoycc. an English musical rnm- 
ccly dagc producer, linn laid before Charles 
l''rolini:in what appoint to be a practical 
plan (or employing moving pictures in rc- 
beaming musical ' comedy companies. . Mr. 
Itoycc for year* has been stage director of 
Italy's Theatre, London. "The Marriage Mar- 
ket, now In is third month at Daly s The- 
atre, Ixindon, la his work. Mr. Frouman 
lins brought Mr. Roycc to New York to lend 
a hand In rehearsing "The Marriage Mar- 
ket,'' for the use of Donald Brian this season. 
Mr. Itoycc is one of the moat expert men 
In Knglnnd In composing largo groups of 
musical comedy people, lie Is as skillful In 
teaching Individual dancing as in obtaining 
rnnnbw effecta. , 

Mr. Itoycc's plan is to put Into immcdlato 
effect n tentative arrangement already made 
with the Kincmacolor Company of America 
I'm- the employment of moving pictures as 
a quick means for putting on dances, for 
Illustrating special groupings, and, con- 
versely, for showing musical comedy artists 
how their work will appear to audiences. 
He claims that moving pictures, properly 
used, In rehearsing companies, 'will M a 
greater corrective, and la the end a greater 
teacher titan any stage producer. In the 
working out of the plan It la expected that 
by the simple device of kalsomlnlng the 
back wail of a stage and employing a moving 
picture machine, dances, intricate groupings 
and ciHcmhlf effects can be unmistakably il- 
lustrated Instead of being loosely described. 
The m heme Is further recommended as a 
quick means for Importing from abroad 
scenes and effects In foreign plays, watch 
can Iw duplicated fnto American productions 
by tlio use of moving pictures. 

Charles Krohman is so favorably lnv 

Crossed with the schemo that ho has told Mr. 
oyce to go ahead with his experiments. 
Mr. I'mimnm's belief la that this plan and 
the constantly Increasing use of moving pic- 
tures lu imiHlral comedies arc trig steps to- 
wards the final nhsorptlon of the whole field 
of moving pictures by the legitimate stage. 
Mr. ltoyce's plan will naturally be tested out 
on a very small scnlo at first, but it will, at 
least, hsve a good trial with the chorus and 
the principals of "The Doll Girl" Company, 
now rehearsing at the Umpire Theatre. As 
a first step, a moving picture machine will 
be Installed this week, with a special 
operator whose business It will bo to re- 
produce the principals of "Tho Doll dirt" 
Company Just n» they look when rehearsing, 
so that afterwards, these pictures, displayed 
on the hack wall of the stage, may show the 
members of the company exactly how they 
look to their audiences. 

Several Frolnunn stars have successfully 
employed the small business phonograph ai 
n means of detecting Imperfections in their 
speech. In the same way It Is expected thnt, 
filming other benefits, through the uso of 
these temporarily made moving pictures, 
lending musical comedy artists will be nolo 
to correct faults that they can only detect 
after seeing themselves as others see them. 

flhe Ideal Amusement Co. is about to begin 
•ho erection of a S05.000 theatre at Sixth 
Street, Moyamcnslng Avenue and Jackson 
Street The theatre will measure 91 by 10O 
feet, and will have a 1,000 seating capacity. 

Margolin A Illock have awarded a contract 
for a f 15,000 moving picture theatre at Nos. 
1003 to 1007 Columbia Avenue, The dimen- 
sions will be 43 by 00 feet. 

Wm. Eckhold Ic Bona are having plans pre- 
pared for a moving picture bouse, 80 by 100 
(feet, at No. 707 Kast GIrard Avenue. 

The Bureau of Building Inspection granted 

permits during July for the erection of seven 

moving picture houses costing $88,700. Tills 

brings the total so far this year for bulld- 

' ings for amusement purposes to forty-seven, 



th a total cost of fl ,01 0,1 45. 


Photoplay artists are called upon to do 
many tilings, but It Is seldom that an oppor- 
tunity presents itself to make use of their 
accomplishments outside of their work, 
Such was tiot the case with Itlchard C. 
Travers, of the Kssnnny Eastern Stock Co., 
the oilier evening. 

While at dinner with some friends down- 
town the waiter presented the card of a gen- 
tleman at an adjacent table, nnd asked 
Trovers if he would kindly step over to his 
table, as he wished to have a chat with bUn. 
Travers, who is an extremely good-natured 
chap, readily consented, thinking, of course, 
that It was someone who tecognlzcdlblm from 
the pictures. Such was not the case. The 
young man quickly told him of the predica- 
ment that he was in. Ho was very much in 
love with n certain young lady residing In 
the fashionable North Shore colony, but on 
account of a contemplated trip to Europe her 
parents would not consent to the marriage 
until their return, two years from now. She 
was only allowed to go out accompanied by 
their chauffeur, who kept constant watcb on 
her movements. 

As tbc young man was familiar with 
T ravers' work he explained that as he had 
overcome so many obstacles In the coune of 
bis plctnre love affairs, that It would be 
very easy for him to solve a simple every- 
day life bit of trouble. Trnvers promised to 
meet he young man and his fiancee the fol- 
lowing evening, and he would try and devise 
some way out of the fix. In the meantime 
the young man was to obtain the license. 

They met, as arranged. No definite plans 
had been made, but It occurred to Travers 
to put one of his many accomplishments to 
good use. Why not drive the machine him- 
self 7 The young pair agreed. Tho chanllour 
was sent for a package of cigarettes. Trav- 
ers took his piace at the wheel. Then canto 
a wild ride through Lincoln Park and out 
Evanston Avenue to the parsonage. Then 
back to tho bride's home, where eventually 
the "God bless you, my children" was forth- 
coming. When Travers was seen at the 
Essnnay studio the only comment he had to 
make was: "What's the use. Why can't I 
do something like that for myself." Girls, 
hero's an opportunity.

The Tricky lira. Trevelyaii.'* Tbe pl«» was 
w rittsn IV W. CrontB-WtlaoB, a new drama- 
tist. The American rights were secured by 
Frwdarte McKay, wlio proposes to present 
the play la New York in October. It ta 
gUm by the Orphcom Players by special 
arrangemeni with lit. McKay, who baa been 
In Philadelphia tbeiiaat week Hupcrintcndlng 
rehearsals. Bertha Mann, who will create 
the leading role for the New York production 
later an, Em teen especially engaged for toe 
title role. 

•Ilia Tricky Mrs. Trerelran" to described 
as a play ■without a hero or a heroine, or a 
villain or an adventureas— *ll t he ch aracter; 
are the nsnal mixture found In humanity of 
various conflicting traits. Tho underlying 
motive of the play aeema to be that men 
should take care that they leave their wires 
flnandaUy bulwarked against the possibility 
of the hashand dying; that the women, not 
being taught how to make money and battla 
with the world, go all to pieces when they 
are suddenly left on their uppers as lira, 
Trevelynn Wat, but when they meet a rtgutor 
man they can tie m> to. they ore-all right. 
In one sense "The Tricky Mrs. Trovcl^'* 
may he described a* a reverse picture of 'The 
Easiest Way." The themes Is that of the 
frivolous young women of Broadway, who 
receive tho attentions and the checks of ttelr 
admirers without. In the least; campromlsinf; 
themselves, like the heroine of Owen John- 
•un's new novel, 'The Sjrtamnnder" they are 
able to play with Bro without being bjjrnecl. 
The situations In 'The Tricky Mrs. Travel- 
yan" lead one to think that Mrs. Trevelyana 
Angers have been slightly scorched, but in 
tho end it Is mode clear that alio has gone 
through the Are onacafhed . .... 

Bertha Mann, en actress of acknowledged 
reputation and ability, will create the title 
role, while Thuraton Hall will bo seen to ad- 
vantage In the role of the man who Wider- 
takes to make her go 'through all her little 
tricks for the sake of exposing them. The 
title Is explained by the line of the old aer- 
want ta the first act who says : "Women are 
at tricky as a wagon load of monkeys. A 
number of well known New York theatrical 
managers will be over during the week te 
see the production of the new play.

Charles Froliman taut week arranged with 
Ethel Hurry more for her re-appearance In 
New York, commencing Oct. 27. Miss Barry- 
more will be seen In the rolo ot -Tantc, lu tho 
four net comedy of that name by C. Haddon 
Chambers. Rehearsals for Miss Barrymoro 
and her company will begin In September; 
there will be preliminary performances out 
of town, and then Mlns Barrymorc and tho 
ploy will come to New York. 

Although Mr. Chambers has taken a good 
deal of the novel. "Tnnto," by Anne Douglas 
Sedgwick, in making the play, he has added 
practically SB much again. ''Tantc" had a 
huge success as a novel. Its study of the 
typically feminine and typically artistic tem- 
perament obtaining for It a wldo appeal. 
The principal character Is, of course, Tanto — 
a mere woman who, with the genius of & 
great musician and the brilliancy of a con- 
summate artist, combines the waywardness 
and arrogance of a spoiled child.

Clipper Bureau, S South Square Gray's Inn, London, XV. C. 

July 20. 
Not within the memory of the present 
writer 'has an American sketch made so Quick 
and deep an Impression on the London play- 

foers as "The System" did, at tbe London 
'alladlum on Monday. Taylor Granville 
mast have been a proud man as he stood 
there bowing his acknowledgment of tbe wild 
applause as the curtain rose again and again 
anil again. Before tbe play began a list of 
tbe slang words employed, with brief explana- 
tions, was thrown on a screen. This was 
hardly necessary for we have been well edu- 
cated here in the ways of the New York 
police. To tell the truth, we have been rather 
fed up with police plays, and so It is the 
more creditable to Taylor Granville to have 
made such a hit. But "The System" seems 
to have all the essentials of a succssful 
sketch. It Is novel. It Is clear and concise, 
it makeB a direct appeal to human sympathy, 
and it la finely enacted. Mr. Granville 
brought over an American company. His 
own impersonation of Billy Bradley, "The 
Bel," is lifelike and fascinating. Laura Pier- 
point plays Ooldle Marshall. The only words 
of criticism are directed to the rather poor 
humor ot -the two reporters. 

Another American act opened at the Lon- 
don Palladium, that of Gene Hodgkln, with 
Irene Hammond and a crowd of chorus 
girls. Mr. Hodgkln opens at the piano, with 
the girls grouped all around him, and gets to 
work on a rapid performance of ragtime. 
Then, with the girls ln turn, he dances. The 
act Is smartly dressed and vivacious, and 
seemed to make a hit all right. Fay, tho 
two Coneys and Fay, a colored ojuartette, 
also made an Interesting contribution to 
tho Palladium program. 

Mary Elizabeth came to London last year, 
Just to look 'round. While she was ln the 
city ebe helped Grace Hazard to get married ; 
and she also put hi a trial week at the 
Victoria Palace. It was quite a hit, and 
secured the artist bookings for this year. 
Mary Elizabeth opened at the Palace Theatre, 
accordingly, and there Is no doubt that her 
delightful personality pleased the audience. 
But there Is a general Impression that the 
artist "will have to get some newer stories, 
and change her songs it she Is to make a 
real bit here. Ethel Greene still holds her 
place in the Palace program. But pretty 
well half the entertainment here Is supplied 
by Pavlowa and her large contingent ot 
Russian ballet dancers. There Is never a 
seat to tie had at this house, whereas business 
has been pretty bad at some of the other 
big variety theatres of late. 

Alfred Butt has fallen for the revue, but 
he declares that the Important spectacular 
production he has ln hand for the Palace 
will not be an imitation of any other revue, 
but something quite different, characteristic, 
and worthy of the house. We are quite con- 
tent to take him at bis word. 

One of our popular newspapers has got 
hold of May Yohe, who has promised to write 
a full, true and particular account of her 
career for publication ln Its columns from 
day to day till all is told. 

It has been freely stated that "Hullo I 
Ragtime" Is ncarlDg an end at the London 
Hippodrome, bub. such is not the case. Tho 
management got ln hand a store of attrac- 
tions against the weakening of the revue, 
but It stubbornly promises to hold the bill 
until Christmas, and then another revue by 
the same authors, on the same lines, will be 
produced. Meanwhile, the Leoncavallo ex- 
travaganza, which should have filled the 
Hippodrome bill about this time, is to be 
worked off at the Prince of Wales' Theatre. 
It will be called "Are You There?" The 
book is by Albert P. de Courville, with as- 
sistants. The Important parts are to be 
played by Franklyn Ardell. Billy Arlington 
and Veronica Brady. Another commodity ln 
stock at the London Hippodrome Is the one 
net play which De Courville Induced Sir 
James Barrle to write for Irene Vanbrugb. 
This 1b entitled "Half An Hour." They 
mean to squeeze this into the program, sup- 
plementary to the revue, immediately. 

There was a considerable revision of tbe 
icvue, "Eight Pence a Mile," at the Al- 
hnmbra last night. Malaguerlta, the Span- 
ish dancer, was Introduced, but especially a 
weird fascinating scena, called "The Spider's 
Web." What looks like a huge spider web, 
with a surround of foliage, occupies ho 
stage. It Is fashioned of stout rope. Made 
u-> In semblance of a spider, Bosettl, the 
charming Albambra dancer climbs about 
this. On tho stage dance little flies, fasci- 
nated and frightened. The spider sets 
for one, pretty Phyllis Monkman, who is 
lured to the net, and entangled. It is 
a fantastic. Interesting composition. A 
story got Into circulation that a rear- 
rangement of the Alhambra Is likely. 
Nothing of the kind. The dual management 
here works smoothly. What truth there 
ever was ln the rumor hod application to an- 
other establishment. 

ill. G. ICnowles, who has been wandering 
'round tho provinces, reached town on Mon- 
day. (He opened at the outlying Now Cross 
Empire. He proceeds to the outlying Hack- 
ney Empire. In due course he reaches the 
London CoIlBeum and the Victoria Palace. 
His London engagements will employ him 
until November. 

Blanche Storey made a good opening at 
the London Coliseum on Monday. 

Jules Jordan advises me of his arrival ln 
London next week. 

Sadrcno Storrl, the dancer. Is now featured 

ln the Opera House revue. Miss Storrl to 
this season's discovery by Robert Court- 
neldge, who employed her in "Oh I Oh 1 Det- 
pbine/' at the Shaftesbury.. The withdrawal 
of that piece gave the clever girl a holiday, 
but she returns to Mr. Courtneldge ln the 

w'. H. Denny, the comedian, Is home for 
hla annual holiday. For years his profes- 
sional interests have been ln America. He 
returns toward the end of August on tho 
I'htlaiclpMo, to" rejoin "Tho Blue Bird. 

On Tuesday, Aug. 5, one hundred and fifty 
performances will have been placed to the 
credit of "The Yellow Jacket,' r at the Duke 
of York's Theatre. Charles Frohman told 
me, Just before he sailed for New York, 
that he will not renew his lease of this house. 

Maud Allan has Just taken a new house 
at Regents' Park, with a practice room fitted 
with mirrors for her characteristic work. 
Her landlords and next-door neighbors ere 
the members of the Baptist Training College. 

Lily Lena's bungalow at the riverside 
village, Thames Dlttoh, has ,been burned 
down. There is ouite a vaudeville colony 

Moss JDmplres, Limited, Jointly with the 
manager of the Cardiff Empire, nave been 
compelled to pay 1250 to a man who was 
ejected from the theatre. He hissed a song 
which he maintained was objectionable. The 
Judge in the high court expressed the im- 
portant opinion that a theatre manager in- 
vited criticism, and that a person merely 
hissing, with an honest opinion, was within 
his rights. He certainly must not be ejected 
violently. . ,.' ., 

Samuel Lloyd, the agent, so long identi- 
fied with Glasgow, has been very lu, but 
Is now. well enough to give some attention to 
business again. 

John Glendennlng will discard "The Ros- 
ary" for a week, at any rate, in order to take 
part with his wife, Jessie Millward, in the 
production of "The Lalrd and His Lady," 
at Chelsea Palace, on Monday week. 

Alberta Bob will produce his show en- 
titled '"Way Out West," at the Bedford 
Music Hall on Monday. ■ 

Billy Richardson, a famous old time min- 
strel, died at Liverpool. He wai the stump 
orator of the Sam Hague troupe, 

John Bull, a weekly newspaper which fea- 
tures "exposures," has been called upon to 
pay Harry Burns, the agent, $450 damages 
and costs. It charged Burns with not deal- 
ing fairly by a chorus girl, who proved to 
tuve been dismissed for drunkenness, after 
much consideration. 

Arthur Bonrchler and his wife, Violet 
Vanbrugb, are understood to receive $5,000 
for a trip to Germany. Where they will be 
filmed In "Macbeth.'' 

Pavlowa tried an aerial flight at Hendon 
the other day. 

When Sir Herbert Tree produces "Joseph 
end His Brethren" at His Majesty's Theatre, 
uMaxlne Elliott will play Potlphar's wife. 

Annie Hughes has secured from the execu- 
tors of the late Arthur Law. for exploita- 
tion In Canada and the United States during

ill Wihslow,' and called "A Rolling Stone." 



The play la In three acts, the action passing 
from a picturesque locale of . the Catsklil 
Mountains to New York City, and giving 
abundant opportunity for brilliant staging. 
Mr. Stern" has arranged to give Mr. Wilson

Mr. Hill was asked the question whether or 
not It was the purpose of Ms office to give Its 
•anion In reports on the merit of various shows, 
vaudeville acts, etc., to which Mr. mil replied 
emphatically that this was not so. That the office 
was not a self-appointed censor by any means, 
that the only reports that, they sent oat would 
bo facta that were obtained from various sources 
as to how tli* attractions appealed to the people 
who had played It and in a general xray to the 
. amount of business It had done, and as to whether 
it was satisfactory as a whole. 

He believes that If be Is selling a Guide to the 
public, that Is is pretty near up to blm to obtain 

?tbc Information from some source or other, to 
Ire them what they are paying for, and he states 
rankly tbat if he depended upon the local men 
themselves he would get about sixty per cent of 
the Information desired, consequently he baa se- 
cured the services of a local representative to 
gather the balance, 

An to a date when the Guide would be Issued, 
Mr. Bill stated tbat it would not be published un- 
til It was thoroughly complete, aa he did not think 
It adylaable to put In circulation any more Guides 
that only gave meagre Information, but that 
there was deeldedly a demand for such a hook 
that covered the ground In a most thorough man-

the Defense," at Los Angeles, Saturday.

Miss Bales wont Into consultation with 
Charles Vrohman, who read for ber James 
Matthew Harris's now play, "Half An Hour? 1 

At the completion of Mr. Frohmnn's read. 
ins; final arrangements were perfected for 
Miss Bates' appearance In this newest of 
Barrio playlets, In conjunction with th* 
Stanley Houghton longer comedy, "Tat 
Younger Generation." Miss Rates will play 
"Half An Hour" after each performance of 
"The Younger Generation." Sbo will not 
step upon the stage until 10 o'clock, but ber 
performance will continue, each nlgbt, until

"Half An Hour" will be produced In Lon- 
don on Sept 20, with Irene Vanbrugb In the 
part of the wife, and later in Paris, with

dramatists who can speak and wrlto English 
fluently, has written Charles Frohman his 
acceptance of the commission to adapt 
"Half An Hour" Into French. Neither Mr. 
Barrle nor M. de Calllavet have ever seen

author to Mr. Frobman received last week, 
M. do Calllavet promised to go to work on 
"Half An Hour" this Summer, at the sans 
time expressing bis pleasure in collaborating 
wltb an author so much to his liking as 
J. M. Barrle.

vacation. Her rehearsals for her first sp- 

Scnrancc in any play by Mr. Barrle will bsgu

Little B. Raymond sends from England 
the following extract from The Performer: 

"The 'AH British' bill Is about as rare as 
the auk's egg.. Usually It can be depended 
upon that a music ball program will contain 
an American turn or two and some conti- 
nental acrobats. 

'Therefore, when the artistes engaged tbe 
week before last at the Nottingham lOmplre 
'tumbled to the fact' tbat they all, without 
a single exception, owed allegiance to the 
Union Jack, they felt properly pleased, and 
determined to celebrate the occasion with 
due pomp and ceremony. The moving spirit 
In the matter was Phil Pcrclval, of 'Sextos 
Blake' fame, and tbe outcome was a motor 
lour through Nottinghamshire's famous 
beauty spot, Sherwood Forest, the scene of 
the exploits of Robin Hood and bis merry 
men In ages agone. Tbose wbo made the 
trip Included Etta Stella and friend, Albert 
Kruno ('Perkins In Paris') and friends, 
Walton and Lester, Phil and Mrs. PerclvaL 
Kyd Walkor, Cullen and Cartby, Camp and 
Critic, Mr. and Mrs. Martin, Mr. and Mrs. 
Lord, and Ernest Brldgen, acting manager of 
the Nottingham Empire."

Imi! from the fact that It li mounted and acted In

celled by any vaudeville house on earth. Th*

tbe Albambra Music Mail. Haynurket, Sydney. 

Palaci (Direction' Wen. Anderson). — Th* 
Amerlcsn Musical Burlesque Co. "The Grafters," 
which was performed jefore a crowded bouse at 
tbls theatre on Saturday evening, June 21, la 
an elaborated music hall sketch. It bat • 
skeleton of a plot, ehlch does not overburden 
Itself with much pretence at probability, but th* 
flesh and blood of tbe entertainment are tbe farce, 
tbe ballets, choruses, saiga and dances, which 
are Introduced upon tie slightest provocation. 
Much of It la clever, but Ine long-drawn punning 
relies upon a primitive species, of humor. The 
comedians of the piece, Messrs. Bert La Blanc, 
Frank Mack, Dave Nowlan and Barry Burgess, 
were entirely successful. Mr. La Blanc's great 
impersonation of s Hebrew tramp, however much 
a libel upon a race, was remarkably clever. In 
a quiet unforced manner be scored right through 
tbe evening. Harry Burgess, as tbe village con- 
stable, also mane a deserved bit. It wss a 
clean cut performance, and bla eccentric dancing 
brought blm a double encore and a recall. Frank 
Mack was sn amusing caricature of a German 
tramp, and Dave Nowlan waa a pleasant Ameri- 
can hobo. The singing of all four was good, and 
the songs went with a awing. Gertrude St. Clair 
moved dashingly across the stage ss a handsome- 
ly gowned widow, and her love pasaages with tbe 
four worthies were much appreciated. But It 
was Eugenia I.a Blanc, who, as a gawky country 
girl, brought down the bouse with her eccentric 
singing and dancing In "Heaven Will Protect a 
Working Olrl." Mrs. Carlton, Charles and H. 
.Ross, and the Misses Teddy Martin and Maudle 
May also sang acceptably. Tbe ballet, under the 
direction of Caroline Phillips, waa a feature of 
tbe performance. The play will be popular with 
those who like a combination of bur- 
lesque snd high class vaudeville. It was highly 
laughable, and will appeal to all wbo do not 
take the theatre seriously, but desire to be soused. 
National (Managing Director, Ben. Fuller). — 
Tbe program at tbe theatre on Saturday, Jum 
21. was enriched by the addition of a very clever 
Chinese juggler, Wong Toy Bun. and the renowned 
Four Stagpolos. Wong performs some wonderful 
tricks with anuiing neatness, which make* them 
appear new, all the while be works with a mys- 
terious stealth, as silent as tbe grave. His per- 
formance waa eminently euecensfuL THe shining 
light of the Stagpules is "Ted," wbo makes his 
somewhat cumbrous figure bounce about the stage 
like sn India rubber ball. Hit acrobatic feats, 
anc" especially his tumbling, are ss clever aa they 
are grotesque. He Is ably aactated be tbe other 
three members of the quartette. (Jeorge Murphy 
Is sptly described aa the Talking Yankee Juggler. 
IW the rest of the bill, the Royal Bnnxala art 

reach that blgh standard of excellence of which 
It It known they sre capable, and which they have 
alnce demonstrated. The show opened Saturday, 
June 28. 

Tits sensation of tbe week has been caused by 
gorgeous posters around the city, announcing the 
arrival oi the "Glory Girl," who appeared at 
the Tlroll Saturday, June 28. Well, as naturally 
lo be expected, a good deal of cariosity waa 
aroused In Tlroll patrons as to who tbe Glory 
Girl" was, wbero did she come from, and what 
was her particular line of ovslceu? The Tlvoll 
waa crowded on Saturday afternoon and evening 
with those wbo desired to see snd hear for them- 
selves. To be brief, and without going Into min- 
ute details of the act, the mystery of tbe "Glory 
Girl" wtt unfolded in the perron of a sweet and 
charming Iodr artiste, wbo sings devotional mu- 
sic In a delightful manner in a semi religious 
setting. The "Glory Girl's" voice wss sweet. 
though Its full beauty waa marred by a tremolo. 
doe, no doubt, to nervousness. Also tbe setting 
of the "Ave Merit" was a shade too blgh for 
the compass of Iter voice; a semi-tone lower would 
have suited much better. Immediately the "Ave 
Maria" was concluded, there was a modulation 
Into the Introduction of "Ort Pro Nobis." Thit 
waa very well snng, Indeed, bat all tbe same 
Piccolonilnl'a religious number was an anticlimax 
to the classic Bach-Gounod "Meditation." Toe 
novel net would huve preserve! Its charming grace 
of form had toe sinter concluded with, aay, Han- 
del's noble "Angers Ever Blight and Fair." 
Anyway, 'It would he more In keeping vrlth tbe

Berlin's collection; of flawless "song most Valuable jewel. The ^ thief removed the 

gem from its setting and used the setting for a poor imitation of the original. Not being a 
" m aster- mind ? * his workmanship was so poor that the public immediately detecting the theft- 
rose in a body and shouted "stop thief." To set the public mind at ease, we happily inform 
them that the inferior imitation has only helped to make the originaf more valuable. The thief 
through his imitation proves that the original Cannot be duplicated^

>i ■*"*' n week at one of the beach theatres, 
Mr. Brown and his company at eighteen 
gave the first local presentation of bis new 
musical farce, entitled "The Bachelor's Din- 
ner," at tho matinee of Monday, Aug. 4. 

It Is quite the most Important of this 
Summer's vaudeville productions, and Mr. 
Brown, independent of his own comedy ef- 
forts and original songs, which made the 
musical hit ot the entire program, was sup- 
ported by a company In every way capable, 
of bringing the best results. 

Sir. Brown assumes the role of a young 
bachelor, and the scene opens upon a dinner 
scene where he is giving a farewell bachelor 
dinner to fourteen of his friends, prior to 
his marriage on the following day. 

During the fan, which is fast and furious, 
the father of the young girl he Is to marry 
appears, and Indignantly declares that the 
pres-ence of women at a bachelors' dinner Is 
a disgrace, bat recognizing among the women 
assembled an old "dame" of his, and being 
sportively Inclined himself, he Joins the 

There Is trouble, however, when the young 
bachelor's future bride and her mother ap- 
pear on the scene, and it requires much in- 
genuity (and lying as well) to straighten 
matters out. 

This is acfcompllehed, however, In the 
regulation musical comedy way. end the 
piece ends with the entire company singing 
one of Mr. Brown's prettiest songs.

da F. Albee, who Is also in St. John, said: 
"There are no unpaid bills as far as Keith & 
Albee are concerned ; in fact, most of their 
disbursements In connection with the new* 
house have been payments In advance. If 
there are any sub-contractors who have not 
received their payments from the main con- 
tractor they will most assuredly be fully pro-

the principal contractor, as we always do 
with our builders, which fully provides for 
any contingency that may arise of a financial 
character, as well as providing against liens,

Corse Payton. and Company. 
Proctor's Fifth Ave., Mati.vee, Auo. 4. 

Presenting for the first time in New York 
a one act comedy, called "The Wife Tomer," 
Corse Payton, assisted by Ulna Phillips, 
Ethel Milton and Bobby Livingston, made a 
fairly good impression on their first appear- 

What success they attained cannot be 
credited to the sketch In any way, as lt is 
about the crudest affair that has ever been 
seen at this house. 

The story, what little there Is, does not 
attract very much attention. 

It tells of a couple on their honeymoon 
who have taken a room in a hotel, in which 
everything seems to go wrong with the young 
wife. She finally loses her temper, and to 
cure her the husband decides to give her a 
dose of her own medicine. He starts In by 
losing his collar button, and before he finds 
it makes a wreck of their room. It is rather 
an old idea and fails to enthuse. 

Mr. Payton, cast as the husband, gave bis 
usual good performance. Miss Phillips, as 
the wife, portrayed her role In a meritorious 
manner, earning much applause for her work. 
The others were well cast and gave a good 
account of themselves. 

The act runs about eighteen minutes, on 
full stage. Jack.

The next production at the Comedy Thea- 
tre is to be the American play, entitled 

William Edmonds and Company, la 
"Help Wanted." 

Proctor's Twentx-mird Street, Jult 28. 
"Help Wanted" Is a comedy sketch, well 
written around the Italian character Mr. 
Edmunds plays. He calls in answer to an 
advertisement for a "man of all work" at 
the borne of a family who are well enough 
off to keep an up-to-date slangy maid, and 
is mistaken for the collector of a hlackhnnd 
gang, a letter having been earlier received by 
the lady of tbe house demanding a sum of 
money, and threatening to kidnap her should 
she refuse. The mistress and maid proceed 
to humor the "wop" with food and flattery, 
and the three worked up a whole lot of fun 
until a policeman arrived, and then tbe 
Italian made known his reason for being 
there and all ended well. 

It took up twenty-two minutes at this 
show but did not have a draggy spot. Mr. 
Edmunds makes a typical Italian and does 

not neglect his role for a minute. He brought 
out laughs that might have been lost by a 
less clever play;r, and was capably supported 
by Kathryn Stevens and Edith Mcndozo as 
tbe mistress and maid, while George Booth 
was on for a minute as the officer. A good 
act for this time. Interior setting Is used.

The man's "nut" material is well enough 
delivered, and the neatly dressed young 
woman Is very good to look upon. They open 
on a bench that "acts" as a "waiting station 
for cars." A bit of flirtation Introduces the 
man's ability to "squirrel" it, and from then 
on all variety of nuts were rolled out. 

The man rather "hogs" tne act. In fact, 
the pretty little lady Is not given much op- 
portunity to show any capability outside of 
appearing "at home" and able to render her 
part of tbe song duets and a dance (to- 
gether) In good manner. They make a good 
appearance, and were not far from the lend- 
ers in the race at this show. About twelve 
minutes, in one. Tod.

tb committee appointed by tbe International 
Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and 
the National Federation of Musicians, upon 
tbe union wage scale the road contracts for 
the coming season, and pending issues, are 
now In progress and there Is every prospect 
that an amicable settlement of these im- 
portant matters will be reached. 

Tbe first meeting with the representatives 
of the musicians' union took place on Thurs- 
day afternoon, July 81, ana the managers 
offered their contract form to tbe union com- 
mittee, consisting of Joseph M. Weber, Otto 
Ostenaorf, R. Oleaon, D, A. Casey and Wm. 
Kcrngood. The contract form was taken 
under consideration by the musicians, who 
were to meet the managers again Aug. 5. 

On Friday, Aug. 1, In the rooms of the 
National Association of Theatrical Producing 
Managers, tbe .managers met the committee 
from the stage hands' union, headed by 
President Charles C. Shay, for the first time, 
and submitted the road contract for the com- 
ing season. Tbe managers present were:

Sargent Aborn, Hollis E. Cooley and Joseph 
M. Bchcnck. The meeting adjourned after a 
two hour conference until Aug. 4, to give the 
union committee an opportunity to consider 
the offer of the managers. 

At the meeting with the stage hands' rep- 
resentatives on Monday the following at- 
tended : The Allied Theatrical Interests were 
represented by Charles A. Bird, William A

The kick of the Treasurers' Club of Amer- 
ica against the plan of the Messrs. Sbubert's 
to replace the men In the box offices of the 
theatres they control with women, has raised 
an inerestlnK discission as to whether or 
not the metnbers of tbe fair sex are compe- 
tent to fulfill the calling. The plan Is to bo 
tried In Brooklyn, at the De lutlb Theatre, 
where Ida I. Ackerman, who for some years 
was connected with Mrs Bpooner, at the 
Bijou Theatre, wilt preside over the des- 
tinies of the box office. 

I. Fluegclman, the manager of the De 
Kalo, Is quite enthusiastic over the idea of 
replacing men treasurers with women. The 
fair sex. he feels, Is better equipped tempera. 
mentally, to pcrfotn tbe duties m the box 
office than the mnb sex. Fnt'ence and tact. 
the most essential temperamental qualities 
necessary In a successful box office treas- 
urer, bo says, predominate In the fair sex, 
while at times (her are sadly larking in the 
man In tne box office. 

Though the men treasurers declare that 
women do not •inderstond "dressing a 
house," Mr. Fluegclman is confident that a 
few weeks' experience In the box office will 
make the women as competent as their male
